Pink Roses on Green Plate
As promised, our offering of American china painting continues with another plate painted by Marie Morris marked "Made in Germany" and signed. While the plate's manufacturer is blacked out, we have been able to read through the mark on a similar plate to find the name Arzberg - a well known porcelain maker. This particular plate is dated 1960. The plate has a bouquet of pink roses on a pale yellow field, accented by green trellis work. The plate measures 9 1/4", and is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. Whether you call it china painting, porcelain painting, or overglaze painting, this is a wonderful example.
