Everything about this cake plate exemplifies 'Springtime'. Delicate, simple pink flowers are entwined against a pastel background of pale yellow, peach and robin's egg blue....which resembles the sky on a warm spring day. The design is very nicely balanced. Handpainted and signed by Pickard artist REURY (Reury, Howard B). The open-handled blank is unmarked, although I have seen this same blank from D&C Limoges, France. No decorating studio mark. This cake plate is in exceptionally fine condition. The gold border is excellent. It measures 11" by 10 1/4".
