Hand painted porcelain expresses the emotional connection between the artist and subject. This lovely hand painted charger plate shows the artist's passion and understanding of beautiful floral arrangements and presentation, proving that sometimes less is more. Executed in a small home-studio environment, circa 1910, the design is painted on a "Limoges CMC France" white-ware blank - (The first "C" is printed backward).
The plate portrays several large California Poppy blossoms, in variegated shades of orange petals, black stamens and golden yellow centers, nestled among shaded green foliage. A leaf covered stem with singular blossom and unopened bud extends in another direction while several other leafy stems reach out to the gold decorated rim. The charger measures 12 1/2" across with no cracks; several tiny chips where a leaf meets the outer edge (see photos) and a small blemish in the gold at another location which was too small to photograph.
