Is It Art or Just Lighting

I have been looking for information about Joh Peters and his work on the “Gainsborough Lady”. The below description of his works and descriptions like it are on the internet and on E-Bay. I have yet to come across anything about LAMPS and Joh Peters. I have entered this into my blog in the hopes of getting information about this artist and the types of work he has generated.

Wonderful rendition of the “Gainsborough Lady’ by Joh Peters on Clarice Cliff Royal Staffordshire England China Plate. What a wonderful presentation! the plate is a large 10 3/4 inches and appears to be bordered in a gold trim. There is a mark on the back that appears to be a gold mark.

Plate is in excellent condition. Front picture is signed: Gainsborough by Joh Peters, Amsterdam, Holland. Back is signed Clarice Cliff, Royal Staffordshire, Made in England.

I have many questions and looking forward to someone responding and providing information about this, I think are great works of art.

    Charles, I too have been searching for information on Jon Peters and am wondering the same thing as you. Artist or Lamp painter. I have one of his lamps as well and it is beautiful. If you find any info let me know via email address. Thanks, Robin

      I saw some of his work on E-Bay and could never come across the lamps. Plenty of plates and such. I was just wondering what category these lamps are to be placed in.

    I recently purchased a 4 x 4 inch painted on paper taped over a ceramic or porcelain tile in gold decorative frame marked Japan. It is signed Gainsborough by Jon Peters Amsterdam Holland. It is is a portrait of a lady w/flowing curls wearing a fancy hat with feathers. I believe it is hand painted water colors. Can you give me any insight?

      Edith, I am very interested in knowing more Mr. Jon Peters, myself and I have seen decorative frames and plates by the gentleman and only have the lamps in my possession. It’s really great workmanship. If you can supply me with some pictures of your piece I would love to look into it.

    I am about to list an original uncut sheet of some of his (Jon Peters) works in the form of water slide decals on Ebay. I’m not sure what they are worth but it will be interesting to see what they go for….autodream33 is my ID on Ebay.
    I tried researching him and came up with only plates, lamps and urns of all things that his work is on.
    These waterslides are named Gainsborough…there is 70 decals on the one sheet.

    In my research I found this blog so I just thought I would let you know what I was going to be putting up for sale in the next few minutes. It’s different, that’s for sure.
