This brilliantly vintage Bavaria hand painted Floral Plates was decorated by the Pickard Artist "Edward Mentges". (Please see Reed's Pickard Collectors Book for bio). Mentges is known for his outstanding "Poppy" renderings and worked for Pickard from 1905-1912, then ran his own Chicago Studio from 1914--1920.
The beautiful hand painted Bavaria Plate displays exceptionally well done "Burnt Poppies" on stem and leaf against a soft creme background with hints of creme burnt orange decor and added shadow leafing. A heavy gild gold outer rim, typical of the Pickard style, enhances the over all beauty of the Plates.
The attractive "Burnt Orange Poppy" Plate is in good condition and are totally damaged free with only light of wear.
The Plate is marked " J & C Bavaria" and has been signed by the Pickard Artist, "Mentges".
The beautiful Plate shows exceptionally and perfect for display.
