Offered for purchase is a beautiful Graves China Co. St. Louis Haviland Limoges Arts & Crafts Nasturtium Design Plate (Signed "Koenig" for Pickard Artist, Carl F. Koenig/c.1905-1930). The plate is in excellent condition... no chips, cracks or repairs, although there are some surface scratches and wear from age and use. The plate is approximately 9.25 inches in diameter. The bottom is marked as indicated in the pictures.
The Graves China Company was started by William Elliott Graves in St. Louis in 1904. Since Carl F. Koenig arrived in the US in 1905 and worked for Pickard Studios from 1905-1912, Brauer Studios from 1913-1915 and then his own studio thereafter, I would guess this piece would have been painted for the Graves China Company early in that period.
