The Chicago Kenwood China Decorator Studio operated professionally from 1915-16 during the great era and popularity of China Painting. The Studio produced numerous desirable pieces to successfully compete with the larger nationally known Chicago Studios of Pickard, Brauer, Donath, Osborne, and Stouffer. The Kenwood China Studio is listed in Alan Reed's Pickard Collectors Book.
This is a fine and beautiful example of the Kenwood Studio, a beautiful hand painted vintage Floral Jardiniere. The beautiful creation measures over 9" wide, 5-1/4" tall, with a opening of 7". It has been superbly decorated with large and lifelike Deep "Red & Pink Roses" on stem and leaf against a background of shadow leafing and background colors of light pale yellow, light cream brown, and hints of a pale lavender. Heavy gold gilding has been added to the top, outer, and inner rim.....adding additional beauty.
The hand painted "Roses" Jardiniere is in good condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage with a pin size incidental gold flake, gilded over, on the top rim. The heavy gilded gold rim is in near pristine condition.
The "Roses" Jardiniere displays an early "Bavaria" mark and has been signed by the Listed Studio Artist, "Kenwood".
The beautiful hand painted "Roses" Jardiniere shows and displays exceptionally well.
