Gorgeous Vintage JR Bavaria Early 1900's Hand Painted Delicate "Pink Roses" 8-5/8" Plate by the Highly Regarded Pickard Artist, Edward Challinor
Master decorator Edward Challinor had a long and illustrious career with some of the greatest Decorating Studios of the early 20th Century. Immigrating from England to the States in his early 20’s, after studying at a Staffordshire School of Art, Challinor started his notable career at the Willets Studio in New Jersey, but was lured to Chicago by Wilder Pickard in 1898, working on and off for the Studio for some 40 years.
In between his stints at the Pickard Studio, Challinor briefly worked for the Julius Brauer Studio of Chicago, as well as doing extensive moon-lighting on the side throughout his career.
Challinor was one of Pickard’s most diversified, as well as skilled and prolific Artist, and was a master at numerous Floral, bird, and scenic presentations creating a number of patterns and creations throughout his long career including the “Challinor Geranium”. It is said that many of his decorating secrets, including the wonderful use of colors, died with him, as they were not passed onto other Pickard Artist. The Pickard Collectors Book, by Alan Reed, has over 2 dozen examples of this great Artist, as well as extensive bio information.
This is an outstanding example of Challinor's outstanding work; a beautiful hand painted Floral Plate decorated on a JR Bavaria blank.
The beautiful Challinor hand painted Floral Plate, which measures 8-5/8" wide, has been superbly decorated with large & lifelike soft "Pink Roses" on stem and leaf against a background of shadow leafing & a off-white background. A gorgeous & heavy gilded fire gold outer rim adds beauty to the fancy scallop Plate.
The gorgeous "Pink Roses" Plate is in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage with the gold being excellent.
The exquisite soft "Pink Roses" Plate displays an early "JR Bavaria Charlotte" mark and has been signed by the highly regarded Pickard Artist, Edward "Challinor"
