The Arts and Crafts movement in America would not have come into being without its British predecessor. The concept of beautiful craftsmanship carried to the United States through newspapers and periodicals, and inspired the formation of Arts and Crafts Societies in cities such as New York, Boston, and Chicago in the late nineteenth-century. The overarching goal of the American Arts and Crafts Movement was to stimulate American craftsmanship in the decorative arts, which included artisans of jewelry, furniture, and ceramics. The American Arts and Crafts movement ended by the 1920s, as industry and mechanization moved into the forefront of the American national identity. However, the artists left us with a legacy of distinctive objects from a period when beautiful craftsmanship was not only valued, but highly sought-after.

This beautiful hand painted Arts & Crafts cabinet plate, circa 1900, is decorated with six stylized iris blossoms jointed together by geometric stems forming a triangular design. The purple blossoms and green stems outlined with black against a pastel yellow background and wide gold rim is stunning. The plate is #1 of seven plates offered for sale and painted by Mabel Shikles; not all are artist signed, this one is unsigned. The plate measures 7 1/2" across and is stamped in green "Germany". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Great Arts & Crafts design.
