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 simplistic, yet gorgeous, hand painted Arts & Crafts cabinet plate, circa 1915, is decorated with a brown and gold wooden basket with black wire handle and filled with lush oranges and purple grapes nestled among green foliage. The basket components are outlined in black, which against the white porcelain blank is stunning. The gold border is overlaid with short and long ribbons of green and purple. The plate is signed and dated on the back "F. E. Brown - 1915". The coup style plate measures 7 1/2" across and is stamped in green "Haviland - France", circa 1894-1931. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Great Arts & Crafts design.
