This is a wonderful blank from the Haviland company - it is called the Ranson blank. It is a wonderful edge with scallops and ruffles and indentation. This large, artist signed beauty is painted with rich and luscious ruby & pink Roses shown in varying stages of opening - from bud size to fully opened. The Roses are shown with their leaves and slender branches. The artist has painted a terrific multi-hued background with colors of blue & golden yellow. The outer border is painted in thick gold.
The Charger measures 13" across it's widest width.
It is in outstanding condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines. The painting is beautiful and the colors are outstanding.
It is marked with Haviland mark 12, 1892 and after.
