J.H. Brauer emigrated to the United States from Germany in 1890 initially settling in New Jersey. By 1902 he was in Chicago decorating for Pickard and by 1903 he was advertising his own studio operating from his home. His organization grew slowly, but included many prominent artist of this era. The business closed in 1926, a year after his death.
This beautiful hand painted cabinet plate, circa 1910, measures 7 1/2" across. Decorated with a clump of California poppy blossoms and buds in shaded deep rich orange/red with pastel to dark green and light gray foliage against a creamy background. The wide gold border is delicately outlined in black. The plate is stamped with the "Brauer" red mark #4, circa 1910 - 1916, and country of origin "Bavaria". There are no cracks, chips, enamel wear or repairs. Lovely.
