Captivating Vintage Limoges France & Pickard Studio of Chicago 1903 Hand Painted "Hanging Apples" Fruit Decor Plate by Artist, "John Nessy"

Artist John Nessy
Nessy was born in Prague Bohemia in 1855 and emigrated to the U.S. when he was 40 years old in 1895. Soon after, in 1898, Nessy started professionally decorating for the Pickard Studio of Chicago leaving after some 20 years to work for a rival Studio, J.H. Stouffer & Co. Nessy many designs were usually of a Naturalistic style and painted numerous flowers, fruits, and nuts. He was well known for his "Deserted Garden" designs as well as for his very popular Fruit Panels. Allan Reed has a bio of Nessy in his Pickard Collectors Book. Additionally, some 6-7 Photos of his outstanding works can also be found in Reed's Book.

I am pleased to Offer this wonderful Pickard Studio Fruit Decor Plate, circa 1903-1905, decorated on a Limoges France blank.

The beautiful vintage Pickard Studio hand painted Fruit Decor Plate, which measures about 8-5/8" wide, has been elaborately decorated with "Hanging Apples", on stem & leaf, against a background of subtle shadow leafing and background colors of cream, light cream green, lavender, yellow brown, and brown. Elaborate 22 K Gold accenting graces the outer rim adding to the Fruit Plate beauty.

The attractive vintage Pickard Studio hand painted "Hanging Apples" Fruit Decor Plate is in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage. The extensive and bright 22 K Gold is excellent.

The stunning vintage hand painted "Hanging Apples" Fruit Decor Plate displays an early Pickard Mark, which was used starting in 1903. John Nessy decorated and signed the gorgeous Fruit Plate.

Please feel free to ask questions.

NOTE: All Photos were shot outside, in several settings, in Natural Light.
