Hand painted porcelain is so beautiful, no matter if executed in a professional studio, factory decorating department or in a small home studio environment. The artistry and attention to detail is what really matters to produce a piece of art. This fantastic pair of hand painted plates was executed by one of the top artist of his era. Samuel Sherratt ran a well-known china decorating studio in Washington, D.C. as a contemporary of Paul Putzki. Born in 1856, he came to American with his wife in 1879 from England, and died at the early age of 47 in 1903.
The motif of both plates, very similar in design, consists of beautiful salmon & yellow pansy blossoms and opening buds nestled among leafage in shades of green, tan and gray against a mottled background of soft cream, gray & violet with a delicate gold trimmed edge. The plates measure 6" across and both are stamped in green with several spellings for "Czechoslovakia" and signed in gold "Sherratt's" There are no cracks, chips, repairs or wear; near mint. Gorgeous pair of plates by renown decorator.
