Artist A. Koch was well know for his painting of still-life fruit designs.
This lovely china plate carries the transfer of one of his designs and signature "A.Koch". The two ripe peaches hang from a leave laden branch against a shaded background of vivid crimson, dark green to pale yellow. The gently scalloped plate has gold trim. The back of the plate is marked "J & C"; for Jaeger & Co., circa 1898-1923. The plate is 8 1/2" in diameter and has no cracks, chips or repairs; some wear to the gold edge.
