The Artist Robert France started his Studio in Chicago in 1906 and very quickly became one of the cities premier china decorating studios of the day. As Alan Reed states in his Pickard Collectors Book "the quality of work is among he best of that period". Early on, France was a one man Studio and instead of signing his pieces, simply put his Studio's name on the back or underside of his creations. The Studio operated from 1906 through 1916 and once established, he added some great Artist including two from the Pickard Studio,, as well as Elsie W. Bieg, who eventually opened up her own studio. Alan Reed recognizes the importance of the France Studio by devoting a page in his Pickard Collectors Book.

This is a fine example of Robert Frances work...a wonderful 9-1/4" Plate displays large and lifelike "Red Currant" on stem and leaf against a background of shadow leafing and background colors of light creme yellow and even lighter creme blue. The artwork, colors, and presentation are all the earmarks of a master decorator.

The hand painted "Red Currant" Plate is in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage with only the lightest of wear.

The Plate displays a "Austria Tilanic" mark and additionally displays the Studio signature, "France Studio. Chicago"
