The etch and gold on this piece are spectacular. I have never had many (if any) pieces with decorations by Wheeler and I am very appreciative of the beauty and workmanship on this piece. I also like the name. I love the bright yellow, cheerful Coreopsis in my own garden. Unfortunately ferns never seem to do well in my yard. I don’t understand it as I always assume that anything that runs rampant in the forest should be easy to grow!
I don’t know who made the plate. It is pink and is an underplate for a bowl of some sort. I haven’t tried to find out, but I guess I should, for interest sake.
I have the book – Wheeling Decorating Co. by James L. Webster. It has lots of beautiful photos and information. A great buy for anyone looking to identify decorations on their own pieces.
