Hello. "What does "Signed in the Plate" mean? This is the artist's signature which has been made in the printing plate and is printed along with the image. This is not to be confused with an original signature." source: Ask the Expert - New Orleans posters http://neworleansposters.com/cgi-bin/store/shop.cgi?page=expert.html&cart_id=271368.75008 "Signed in the Plate - Instead of signing each print in pencil, the artist signs in the plate in which case the signature appears printed." source: What is an original print? http://www.dshprintmaker.com/Print.html "A print is said to be signed in the plate if the artist's signature is incorporated into the matrix and so appears as part of the printed image." source: DICTIONARY OF PRINTMAKING TERMS http://www.ahpcs.org/Library/diction-ta.htm "The very earliest prints were not signed at all, although by the later part of the fifteenth century many artists indicated their authorship of a print by incorporating a signature or monogram into the matrix design, what is called "signed in the plate" or a "plate signature."' source: What is a print? http://www.evabreuerartdealer.com.au/print.html ------- search strategy: "signed in the plate" means I hope this helps.
