A vintage porcelain compote or possibly cake stand that features a hand painted design. We find gooseberry clusters amid pale green and pink background. The artist has added free hand gold areas between the gooseberries. The rim on both plate and pedestal are trimmed in gold. The plate and pedestal are securely locked together with a metal stem and bold as seen in the pictures.
The porcelain hallmark is absent but we do see the artist's signature of Addie Youngblood. Here is a bit of history on Addie that was sent to us by her Granddaughter : "Addie Grafton Youngblood was my grandmother. She was born and raised in Ellis County Texas. She was born in 1887 and died in 1972. She was a very talented artist, and from what I know she gave some of her hand painted items to friends and family, but kept most of what she painted. I don't think that she ever sold anything that she painted. I have at least 100 of her hand painted pieces... I do believe that the item was most likely painted around 1940. "
Measuring 9 1/2 inches in diameter on the plate and 4 inches tall, we find a glaze line issue on the bottom of the pedestal. This does not show through to the top but we wished to disclose it. You can see it on our last photo above the signature.
