This porcelain plate was produced in France by William Guerin Limoges in 1900. It has a diameter of 10 3/4 inches. The foot ring on the back of the plate is trimmed with gold. This is often an indication that the particular item was exclusive in its production. The plate has an under glaze green mark and an over glaze gold mark indicating that the porcelain and the decoration are both from the factory. In addition, there is an artist’s signature on the front of the plate. It has a 1 3/4 inch cobalt blue border richly decorated with elaborate raised gilding. The portrait is of a young woman seemingly in contemplation. She is serene in her simplicity.
