About Pickard Studio of Chicago
Pickard China was incorporated in Edgerton, Wisconsin, in 1893. Wilder Austin Pickard (1857-1939) started the company in 1894 by offering his customers hand-painted giftware, artware, and eventually dinnerware. He moved the company to Chicago in 1897. The company was originally called Pickard China Studio and it specialized in hand decorating dessert and tea sets.
Pickard assembled a group of men and women china painters, many emigrating from Europe, to create this uniquely American style of hand-painted china. Many of the original artists were from the Art Institute of Chicago. During its time, the Pickard Studio became the premier decorating Studio in America and eventually the standard that all other great studios are compare too.
The Pickard Studio was well known for a variety of fine artwork including hand painted Dinner Ware Sets, Tea Sets, Lunch Set, Coffee Sets, Vases, Punch Bowl Sets, Dresser Tray Sets, and Jardinieres, though hundreds of other items were also produced.
Pickard, Inc., remains a family-owned business to this day and operates out of Antioch, Illinois. The company's sales are primarily in fine china dinnerware, decorative accessories and collectibles.
The Author & Collector Alan Reed has produced an outstanding “Pickard China” Collectors Encyclopedia, which first came out in 1995 but has gone through a reprint since. The outstanding and informative Book is a MUST for all collectors and has hundreds of photos of this great Studios works.
