Attractive MZ Austria Vintage 1900's Hand Painted "Blackberry" 11" Fruit Plate with Cut Out Handles by the Artist, "L. Davis"
Fresh from an estate just north of Chicago in Evanston, Illinois comes this beautiful hand painted MZ Fruit Decor Master Plate. The beautiful Master Plate was in a partial Set, decorated & signed by the Chicago Artist, "L. Davis". Though this Plate is not signed, you can view many of the matching pieces from this partial Set, with the Artist signature, in my Ruby Lane Store.
In 1907, there was a listed China Decorating Studio by S. Davis located in Chicago, Illinois. Most likely this piece. along with other matching pieces, which I have listed, were created in the Davis Studio.
This is a superb vintage MZ Austria large Fruit Decor Master Plate, which measures 11" wide, and decorated with large & lifelike Blackberries, on stem & leaf, against a background of heavy shadow leafing and background colors of cream, very light cream lavender, light cream blue, and hints of very light cream burnt orange. Note the white raised enameling on the flowers of each of the pieces. The beautiful "Blackberry" Master Fruit Plate has been gilded in bright gold and heavily accenting the outer rim and the two fancy Cut Out Handles.
The superb MZ Austria hand painted "Blackberry" Master Fruit Plate is in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage with the heavy gilded fire gold excellent throughout..
The exquisite hand painted "Blackberry" Master Fruit Plate displays an early "MZ Austria" mark. Though unsigned, the beautiful large Fruit Plate was decorated by the early Chicago Artist, "L. Davis".
The rich, vibrant, and deep colors displayed on this beautiful "Blackberry" Master Fruit Plate makes it a stand out.....and will make a wonderful displays piece.
