Founded in 1895 in Chicago, Illinois, the Pickard China Company rapidly became one of the premier decorating companies in the country. Originally importing china blanks from Foreign manufacturers until 1938 when they developed their own fine translucent china.
This lovely sugar cube server, from the Russian Flowers series, is decorated with yellowish-pink flowers, blue fleurets, gold and green pendants, accented by wide and narrow gold bands and handle. It measures 6 1/2" long and 4" wide. Stamped with Pickard mark #7, 1912 - 1918, decal over gold maple leaf and the china manufacturer "Noritake & Nippon". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; the gold is excellent.
