This gorgeous dish was hand painted by Jul M. Brauer artist , in the a beautiful autumn currants pattern. Hahn worked for Pickard Studios also and is well known for his Tulip Modern. He did fruits and flowers in naturalistic stylized and conventionalized formats equally well. When painting fruit motifs he and the well known Pickard artist, E Challinor were equals. Charles Hahn is listed and his work is shown in Alan B. Reed's reference book 'Collector's Encyclopedia of Pickard China. Compared to Pickard and Stouffer studios, the population of surviving Brauer china pieces is quite small. Hahn has started his masterpiece using a very rich color for the background composed of varying shades of reds and rusts on one side and soft pastel. The currant motif is absolutely magnificent! He has painted them so lifelike and has given them a very three dimensional look. He has mixed golden leaves and brown branches amongst the berries adding that extra naturalistic feel. The rim of the dish is decorated with gold gilt and black outline that is in excellent condition completing the piece beautifully. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
