It's barely vintage - dated 1992 - and none of the other items in the box were that new by a long shot, so it really jumped out right away. I started to set it aside to look at later, but then the beautifully detailed basket of poinsettias, wild roses, holly and mistletoe caught my eye.
about Claudia and Jamie as often as I had.
The back of the plate told me that it was designed by Anne Marie Trechslin, so a-binging I went, and became not only intrigued but enchanted. Trechslin was born in 1927 in Italy, and studied art in France, Italy, Germany, and England. She became famous internationally for her stunningly beautiful and completely realistic paintings of flowers, especially roses. She died in 2007, but she did some truly amazing things during the course of her life - well worth a read on wiki for those who'd like to know more. Interestingly enough, I couldn't find any photographic images of Trechslin herself - if you come across any, I'd love to see them.
