Lovely Vintage Germany 1915 Hand Painted "Forget Me Not" Syrup Pitcher & Under Plate by Listed Chicago Artist, "E.W. Big"

Artist, Elsie Bieg

Ms. Elsie Bieg, like many of the great Porcelain Decorators of the early 1900’s, started her career at one of Chicago’s major Decorating Studios; Frances Studio.

In 1915 Ms. Bieg open up her own Chicago China Decorating Studio on the northside of Chicago, called Humboldt Art Studio. The Studio operated from 1915-1928 with the large majority of her creations being Floral & Fruit renderings. Many of her creations were almost exact emulations of popular Pickard creations. To capitalize on her Studio success, Ms. Bieg opened up a retail outlet in downtown Chicago on West Madison Street called the “Madison Art & Gift Shop”, which was quite successful.

More information on this wonderful early Chicago listed Artist can be found in Alan Reed’s Pickard Collectors Book including ½ Page dedicated to her Porcelain Decorating Studio; Humboldt Art Studio, Pages 263-264.
