Guest Book
This porcelain plate was produced in England by Brownfield’s China between the 1870s and 1880s. It was made especially for Tiffany in New York. It is artist signed “Hartmann” and titled “The Lark”. The plate measures 9 1/4” in diameter. The plate is made of fine, white bone china. The border is celeste blue with raised French enamel roses and Asian mons. The edges of the plate are richly gilded and there is beaded and lacy gilded accents. The hand painted scene of a young maiden sitting in a flowering meadow, is gazing at a lark flying in the distance. The quality of painting is fine with attention to detail. Distant views, sky and earth give balance and perspective. It is very calming and pleasing to the eye. It is as if you just happened upon this young girl in here moment of quiet contemplation.
