Cherished Moment Collector's Plate by Artist Brenda Burke
Under the hallmark of W.S. George Fine China this limited edition collector's plate - Cherished Moment by artist Brenda Burke was issued in 1990. This particular plate was the second issue in the Bonds of Love Mother's Day collection. It is numbered 9248 A with a BRADEX #84-G20-20.1 This plate was produced early in 1990 and ended production on May 12th 1990 (Mother's Day) that year. This is a highly collectible plate. Brenda Burke is an artist that celebrates the bond between a Mother and child with a focus on Victorian styles adorned with beautiful flowers and lace. Her artwork is instantly recognizable for these features. This particular plate displays those features in highly detailed and colorful hues. I urge you to view the photos and pay close attention to the details in the lace. They are gorgeous. The plate measures 8 1/2" in diameter and is free of any cracks, chips or marks. It is in good condition and comes with the COA and some informative background material. The plate itself as well as the COA are signed by Brenda Burke. On the back of the plate, the artist writes: Seeing a child and Mother sharing a quiet moment together is as soft and tender as rose petals in a light summer breeze
