Provencial Line “Lunch Hour” Plate with flower and names

Question:
I am trying to get any information at all about this piece. This is what I know about it. I was told it is Red Wing Pottery. It must have belonged to my Grandmother because her name is on the back (Sabina Rose). I believe she worked for the company in Red Wing, Minnesota but I can’t verify that either.
