Osborne was the only Chicago china artist of any statue to use his first name for his studio, Anglicized from Asbjorn (Norwegian). His career started working for other decorators/wholesalers, until he opened his own studio in 1910. His most prolific years extended into the mid-1920's.
This outstanding Osborne studio cabinet plate features a cameo scenic transfer motif of a "Strolling Couple" in the center of the plate. Surrounding the center is an etched gold laurel band, AOG etched rose and daisy design with a interspersed band of light green and gold floral motif. The wide outer border is again decorated with an AOG etched design of water lilies and leaves. The plate measures 9" across and is a Haviland Ranson blank. The back is stamped in green "Haviland France", a mark used from 1894-1931 and a circular stamp "24 Karat - Encrusted Gold - Hand Painted", circa mid 1920's - mid 1930's. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint and beautiful.
