The crescent shaped dish is called a bone dish and was used at one time for chicken or fish bones. Every complete set of china had these for each individual place setting. They can still be used for this but also are very collectible and pretty. This dish is hand painted and is 7" x 3 ½" approximately. There is a label on the bottom but it has a lot of wear and I can't make out what it says other then hand painted. It has a gold paint trim and jeweled beading. It is a picture of a young woman handing an angel a garland of flowers. It is in very good condition.
