- Details: This is such a cute ceramic plate! It is third in a series of twelve plates from the Calendar Collection by artist Sarah Stilwell Weber, this plate is titled: “August”. The firing was limited to 100 days and this is plate #6368A. There is so much color and movement in this plate! There’s joy in the little girl’s face, feeling of the wind tossing her hair and dress, makes this a very lively and summery scene! The back is stamped with the information on this collection which are works selected by her daughter, Jane Weber Winston. In part it reads: “To capture that delicious feeling of wind and surf was an artistic problem my mother enjoyed solving. For me it was summer vacation. Jane Weber Winston”. We believe the artist’s signature is in blue within the waves by the girl’s feet. There are no pre-drilled holes, but it came with a plate hanger already attached so we’ll include it for you. This is a beautiful plate, would make a very nice gift for an August birthday girl. Great decor for a coastal home or for someone who loves this artist.

Sarah Stilwell Weber was born on September 15, 1877 in Concordville, Pennsylvania. She was an American illustrator and one of the best known magazine and book illustrators in the early 20th century. In the 1900’s she studied under illustrator Howard Pyle at The Brandywine School, a residential art program. Sarah worked for The Saturday Evening Post among many other publications. The Post said “…she was particularly adept at creating movement and flow that gave the impression of coming and going… [and] that the subject would dance off the page in the next moment.”
