This is an old salad plate done in a delightful pattern. The plate is a creamy soft white. It has light brown around the rim and decorative leaves and berries with twigs. The leaves are done in various shades of brown and green. The berries are muted reddish brown. The center is decorated with a robin standing on a tree branch watching or guarding her nest. There are three small speckled eggs inside the nest. The nest is surrounded by orange leaves and feathery green leaves. Because of the style of decoration, color and impress mark we believe this plate dates to around the late 1800's to early 1900's.
There is an impress mark on the back that is PG. We have not been able to identify the maker or pattern.
It measures 7 ¾" in diameter.
There is a hairline crack on the back which runs through the plate for approximately 1". It does not show on the front. It has light crazing due to age.
This is a really unusual and difficult to find pattern. It is a very charming and beautifully crafted nature inspired design.
We have a dinner plate listed in this pattern also - RBA-P193.
