Jean Ames Decorated Plate II
Mid Mod Mom founder Beatriz Macias didn't know thrifting existed until she moved stateside from her native Colombia when she and her husband furnished their West Coast apartment with Salvation Army finds. These days the former architect puts her discerning eye to use by rooting out mid-century wares and masterpieces each with its own distinct art-inspired flair. From vintage cookbooks and sectional sofas to a beautiful Pegasus mobile the inspired undertones and exotic flavor of her first-class finds can't be beat."
This lovely dish was hand-decorated by Jean Goodwin Ames in her distinctive style. A professor at Claremont College, Ames was a WPA artist and worked alongside her husband in several disciplines: enamel, pottery, paint, etc. Featuring imagery of a woman bathing in a champagne glass, the piece is titled Champagne" and signed on the front and back. This gently used vintage product is in very good condition with no damage. Crackled appearance is part of the original decoration. There are a couple small glaze pops on the surface not visible. Meant for decorative use only."Country of Origin: VI
