This small dish is moulded in relief, airbrush decorated and the details hand finished in fine black lines. The border takes the form of a ships wheel. It has the feel of the mid-1950s about it, although I can't be sure. Until recently I was in little doubt that this was the plate Cameron Brown was referring to. However, a larger relief decorated and painted plate has come to light and was sold at auction in Auckland not long ago. A picture of this on can be found here: http://img.carters.com.au/164019.jpg
What do you think? I think both of them are probably Titian. This is one of those numerous interesting obscure details of Titian production that is so rewarding for the collector. Again I want to emphasis the folk art character of these souvenir pieces of Titian - so different from what Crown Lynn was all about.
