– The Art Of Norval Morrisseau In Porcelain. Toronto: L.A.K. Fine Arts (promotion booklet).
This plate is the first in a collection of 4 Norval Morrisseau plates with the theme ‘Children Of Mother Earth’. They came in special Morrisseau boxes with certificates and wooden stands.
The others plates are:
– ‘Children Of Mother Earth – Summer’, click here;
– ‘Children Of Mother Earth – Fall (Autumn)’, click here;
– ‘Children Of Mother Earth – Winter’, click here.
These come with photos of the plate itself instead of the design images.
1) One of Morrisseau’s dealer at the time has stated that from the original
planned 2500 sets only about 500 where made. So far I have seen no
edition number above 461.
2) These plates are hand signed and numbered in gold on the backside.
