The Ceramic Art Co. came into existence in Trenton, N.J. in 1889, with Jonathan Coxon, and Walter D. Lenox. Ceramic Arts Company became Lenox, Inc. in 1905. The Belleek ware was either decorated artistically, by the best painters or produced in the white state for amateur and professional decorators. Several of the backstamps used were on undecorated pieces, the initials of the Company and a painter’s palette, printed in purple and other colors; on undecorated ware, called “Indian China,” previous to 1895, an Indian’s head; and on special decorative work for the trade, a wreath enclosing the full name of the Company.
This beautiful ruffled bowl and under-plate in soft bisque finish was either created in a professional studio or a home studio environment by a gifted artist. The pieces are not artist signed. Both pieces are completely decorated with exquisite pastel pink and yellow rose blossoms and buds nestled among leaves of variegated green, gray and brown on delicate brown stems. The ruffled edges are royal blue in color.
The bowl measures 4 3/4" across and 2 1/4" in depth and the under-plate measures 6 1/2" across. Booth pieces are marked in green with the 'pallet mark'. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Gorgeous.
