Martinez, Maria – Plate with Cloud Designs “Marie + Santana”, 1940’s
This plate by Maria Martinez is one of her classic designs. It was made and polished by Maria Martinez and painted by her daughter-in-law Santana. It is painted around the rim with a cloud design. It is a style which Santana often used for her larger plates. It’s nice to see it on a smaller piece! The plate is signed on the back, “Marie + Santana”. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair but some minor surface scratches. Definitely a classic!
