This is a very sweet plate with a definite "Springtime" attitude. It features very realistic pansies handpainted in tones of blue and violet, and yellow and burgundy. The bright green foliage stands out against a background of pastel green, blue, pink, and yellow. There is a very fine gold border at the edge which does show some wear, and there are a few pinpoint dots of errant glaze. I cannot find an artist's signature.
This unmarked blank measures 8" in diameter. It carries the Stouffer decorating mark 5, which was only in use for a year (1912-1913). Stouffer Studio was a strong competitor to the other famous Chicago china painting studios such as Pickard, Osborne, etc., during the late 1800's and early 1900's.
