These two are quite a pair! The artist has done them in a beautiful vellum landscape scene. Incorporating trees and pink flora it really grabs you attention. She has used purples, greens, blues and pinks to create his masterpiece. She compliments her artwork with golden handles and a gold finial. One handle on the sugar at the top connection has a break in the gold, maybe a fracture but the lower portion is still intact with no flaws, please see pictures. This is a must have for any Pickard collector!!! Florence James was the most prolific among the women at Pickard studios. In 1901, at age 16, she had already set up her own china decorating studio in Milwaukee. In early 1905 she moved to Chicago and became one of studio's youngest artists, male or female. She did only a few pieces in vellum so this would truly be a wonderful addition to a Pickard Collection. Her work can be seen in "Collector's Encyclopedia of Pickard China," by Alan B. Reed. In 1912 Pickard Studio's in Chicago IL introduced a very successful line of vellum scenic. Applied in delicate pastel colors with matte-finish paints, they had a velvet feel that amplified the soft and distant mood that most of the scenes portrayed. Many of the scenes he painted were taken from local woodlands. She completes this masterpiece by trimming the sides with roman coin gold.
