A wonderful 12 1/2" handpainted charger by the Pickard and Stouffer artist Samuel Heap featuring beautiful peaches on the vine. Heap worked for the Pickard Studios in late 1904 and early 1905 moving to the Stouffer studio when it opened in 1905. His beautiful work continued until the 1920s helping to elevate Stouffer studios as a major player in the finely painted porcelain market.
This beautiful charger features a group of three peaches hanging in cluster on the vine. A solo piece of fruit is noted to the side. Wonderful shading, highlighting and attention to detail is noted. Expert balance is noted with the hues of green, yellow, cream, and peach.
A 1/2" gold painted band is noted around the perimeter of the plate with black ink touches to highlight the design.
