This is a beautiful scalloped mold with gold painted around rim. The artist has painted a single purple flowered thistle on deep green stem with leaves on the center of this plate. In contrast to the thorny thistle he has painted a beautiful yellow orange butterfly adding softness to this piece. He has placed them on a white background with a faint hue of pink running through the middle making the picture come alive. He has initialed and signed the back with “M.A.R. / CBA Dated Dec.25.1889. This was truely a Christmas gift from the heart by the artist. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
See PLT310 and PLT311, same artist and same date.
