Hand painted porcelain is so beautiful and decorative no matter if executed in a factory decorating department, professional studio or home-studio environment, it expresses the emotional connection between the artist and the subject. The quality and appeal of the finished product is what really matters.
Bawo & Dotter was established in New York City in the 1860's to import porcelain, especially from Limoges, into the USA. In the early 1870's they started the Elite Works in Limoges to decorate porcelains made by other factories. The company closed in 1932.
This gorgeous hand painted cabinet plate, in a vellum finish, is one of a set of 4 expertly executed by the same artist. The center motif is a cluster of chrysanthemum blossoms and buds with faint images of ornamental grasses in the background. The pastel color pallet includes golden yellow, green and gray. The sculptured rim is gold encrusted with a delicate inter-border gold swag design. The plate is marked with only a small red "v". Artist signed and dated "M. B. Peale 92". The plate measures 9 1/4" across with no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Purchase the set of 4 for $495.00.
