This is a French Limoges hard paste porcelain plate that was most likely hand painted in the Women’s Art Movement in the United States. The maker of the plate is Klingenberg. The artist’s signature on the back is A.D. Balthasac. The date is circa 1890 – 1910.
The plate is 8 3/4”.
The plate is a coupe plate with raised ridges in the blank at the edge.
The artist painted a colorful bird and a baby bird on the ground under a flowering tree. I assume the bird is one that lives in the same region as the artist, which was Missouri. I have no idea what the name of the bird is. The bird has a lot of colors as you can see, and the baby bird next to it is mostly brown, like a fox sparrow.
The edge of the plate is painted in gold.
There are no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing. There is a little bit of age wear to the painting.
The green underglaze maker’s mark is A K D France. The artist’s signature is A.D. Balthasac, St. Louis, Mo.
