This is a nice example of an early 1900 vintage hand painted Fruit Decor Plate. This beauty measures 12" wide from outer handle to outer handle. She has been beautifully decorated with large life like "Blackberries" on stem and leaf with flowers. The background has soft colors of a light creme lavender and pale blue. The fancy handles have been gilded adding to its overall beauty. This gem was decorated by Poole Studios of Chicago which was in business from 1915-17 and as such is marked "Poole" on the backside. [See Reed's Pickard Collectors Book for information]. The Plate was signed and decorated by "Mead"...and he displays his signature on the front side. The Plate displays an "Hutschenruther Selb Bavaria" mark. This beauty is in good condition and is without nicks, chips, or other damage. She will make a nice addition for your fruit decor or hand painted collection.
