This is a very lovely Haviland Ranson mold Tray that is initialed by the artist on the back. The artist has painted delicate, dainty Pink Violets twining around the body of the tray, interconnected with their ribbony vines and pretty leaves tucked around them. It is hard to find Pink Violets painted on porcelain; they are very appealing. The Violets are painted against a soft green background with darker green around the border. The raised areas are painted in Gold. This is an exquisite tray; a highly desirable Ranson mold and beautifully painted.
The Tray measures 11 1/2" long and 7 7/8" wide.
It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines. It is delightfully painted, the colors are firm; the gold looks fabulous and this shape is so appealing.
It is marked with Haviland mark 12. The background colors are a bit more green than shown in my pictures.
