A stand of trees punctuates the misty, hand-painted landscape on this Arts & Crafts style stoneware plate—framed with a crystalline, dark green glazed border. It is signed indistinctly and appears to be the work of a talented artist in the somewhat recent past (the last 40 years?). While it's probably not an antique, it has wonderful style and great glazing. Until I ship it, I'll be keeping it on my Stickley coffee table—surrounded by green Arts & Crafts "siblings," all about 100 years older. Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
