Fantastic Annemarie Davidson biomorphic blue and gold enamel jewel dish. Davidson produced enamel plates and giftware in Sierra Madre, CA from the 1950s up until recently. She also appeared in the celebrated exhibition Painting with Fire: Masters of Enameling in America, 1930-1980.
We rarely see these biomorphic shaped enamels. In addition, this pattern with gold and blue lines radiating from the “jewels” in the center of the dish is probably the most highly sought after Davidson design. Mid century modern collectors love these dishes. Original gold sticker reading “Annemarie Davidson handcrafted enamels Sierra Madre, California”, along with her conjoined “AD” mark under the enamel. Also has remnants of a price tag on back.
In excellent condition, with no major damage. A bit of scuffing or hard water deposits on back. Please excuse the photo reflections - the dish is actually in great shape.
Measures about 10 1/2" long, 6.25" widest and 3/4" tall.
