The weeks just fly by. It's time for favorite Saturday again. This week I'm showing my favorite hand painted plate. This plate was a wedding gift to my grand parents. It is dated 1905 and the name Flo, I think. The name and date are in the darker green on the lower right hand side. The only thing on the back is France. I have been told that in the 1900's women did a lot of hand painting on dishes. I've always thought that maybe a friend of my grandma's painted this and gave it to her on her wedding day. Or maybe not. We'll never know. It was my mom's, after grandma died, and when mom started growing old, she gave it to me. She said that she would enjoy it more seeing my pleasure while it hung on my wall. I do love this plate. It hangs in our dining room. There are roses in the valances at the windows and the colors of the plate are perfect for this room. I've always worried about it being knocked off the wall by some little person. It's in a place where few people go.I have many other hand painted dishes, but this is my favorite.
