Hand painted china is beautiful and unique as it portrays the artists emotions and visions for the subject he or she is creating. This is #2 of 4 hand painted cabinet plates, circa 1905, portraying beautiful floral motifs, painted on matching Haviland china blanks, created in a small home studio environment by a very talented individual with great attention to detail and subject naturalism. Two of the plates are initialed and dated by the artist, two are not.
The colorful motif of this plate is gorgeous bachelor button flowers, unopened buds and leaves fluttering in the summer breeze. The delicately shaded medium blue and gray blossoms with green leafage is imposed over a creamy background with hints of pink and blue highlights. The gently scalloped plate measures 8 1/2" across with delicate gold edging and and is stamped "Haviland - France", circa 1894-1931. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. This plate is not artist signed or dated.
