This porcelain plate was produced in the U.S.A. by Lenox between 1894 and 1906. The plate has a diameter of 9 inches. It was commissioned for the retailer Bailey, Banks & Biddle of Philadelphia. The plate is artist signed W.H. Mosley who was a prominent painter at Lenox. The plate has a soft cream colored ground. The center is hand painted in subtle colors in a rather “Impressionistic” manner. The birds are identified as “Rail”, a game bird living in marsh lands. They are painted in fine detail. The rim of the plate is trimmed with heavy, embossed gold. The foot ring on the back is also gilded showing that this was no ordinary plate. Condition: Excellent
