Gorgeous MZ Czecholsolvakia 1920-30's Hand Painted "White & Pink Wild Roses" Floral Nappy by Sherratt's Studio
Artist, Samuel Sherratt
Samuel Sherratt, who was born in Staffordshire, England in 1856 was a well known, highly sought after and renowned painter of China during his day. Sherratt, who came to the States as a 23 year old, started his very famous Sherratt's Art School in Washington D.C in 1889. It was here that Sherratt offered unlimited advantages for his many pupils eager to study and learn China Painting.
During this time his personal hand painted China became highly desirable, first by the elite of Washington, D.C., and later by the larger general public. With the assistance of his wife, Margaret, who also was a very accomplished China Decorator, the business thrived and expanded. At the World's Fair, in 1893, Mrs. Sherratt received the medal in the Woman's Department at the World's Fair for the best work in the line of decorated china.
Samuel Sherratt passed in 1903, but the tremendous success of his Sherratt Studio expanded & carried on for many years run by his wife and nephew with buyers coming from every part of the country and even continues to be sought after till the present day.
This is an outstanding vintage, circa 1920-30's, hand painted Floral Nappy with a MZ Czecholsolvakia mark.
