Featuring an 8" scalloped all hand painted plate with ornate fancy brushed gold boarder, and a spray of goose berries and leaves. Exquisitely painted, this was a fashionable craft for talented ladies to do in the United States at the turn of the 20th century. The artist's initials are seen at the base of the branch,"I.M.H." and on the reverse, the initial "H". There is no maker's mark for the type of porcelain it is, which is surprising, but it is obviously a Limoges blank as the china is very fine, with a clear good ring when tinged and the impressed and scalloped shape/boarder is typical of French porcelain. Also typical was, that the plain white blanks were imported into the United States from Europe, mostly France, for these talented ladies to paint. It is in mint condition with no wear to the gold, no chips, cracks, scratches, damages, or restorations whatsoever. Satisfaction guaranteed or money back. 3 day return privilege providing item returned in sent condition. Postage/insurance extra. New York buyer pays their county sales tax on item and postage unless valid tax number and resale certificate provided.
