I have always dearly loved this Limoge plate.
This signed Haviland Limoge hand painted decorator plate is a very rare to find daisy design. The autumn theme of daisies or rudbeckia covers the entire plate in relaxing colors of autumn sienna orange, canary yellow, chocolate brown, and leaf green. The plate also has a wide rim of 24kt gold.
It is a large plate at 8 3/4" or 22.2 cm wide. This plate has been in one of my glass curio cabinets untouched for over 40 years.
This antique plate has the Haviliand green mark from 1894 to 1931. It also has the OMG or Pirkenhammer mark, which you wont find any reference to in Haviland marks. It was the artist's mark who designed for Bavaria and France. I believe this mark was used around 1912.
The overall condition of the plate is exceptionally clean and very fine for age, but not perfect. There is no wear or scratches on the plate where the flowers are painted. This area is rather perfect with no paint wear or other imperfections; only very microscopic hint of wear. The rim has light gold wear and there are some light scratches in the gold. There is also one small spot on the rim of a small repair in clear epoxy that is hard to see. There are no rim chips or cracks.
You can see the Haviland marks on the back of the plate in the photos. The back of the plate is perfect and like new except for some light wear on the foot rim where it rested on a plate easel all it's life.
