Beautiful Haviland Limoges plate signed by Chicago artist and art teacher, Elizabeth Stoner. Gorgeous tea roses, hand painted in her signature, naturalistic style. Lovely pink blooming roses with a single, vivid red rose bloom along thorny, trailing stems with rosebuds and leaves against a smoldering background of yellow, blue, green, and earthy brown. Elizabeth Stoner contributed to the Keramic Studio, a national magazine founded by Adelaide Alsop Robineau geared to china painters and art potters, and a major influence in china painting. Stoner's naturalistic style corresponded to the aesthetic, arts and crafts movement popular at the time. Interestingly, Stoner numbered her paintings, this one is numbered 4, the same as another, larger plate we have with this same floral art painting, please see item # LMG-2504 . The plate has two tiny scratches and slight wear to the bottom outside rim, apparently from where it rested in a cabinet, there are no chips, cracks, or hairlines. It is signed E. Stoner and measures 7 5/8" in diameter. Marked Haviland, France, with Stoner's hand numbered 4. Circa 1910.
