~ BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE LIMOGES FRANCE CHARGER FINE ART PLAQUE OR CHOP PLATE TEA SERVICE TRAY w SOFT ROMANTIC FRENCH ROSES ~
This is just a Romantic beauty ~ a Beautiful Large 13 5/8" Limoges Plaque, Charger or Chop Plate, Tea Service Tray signed by a very talented early 1900's porcelain artist: E. D. McCue. The artist has captured these lovely roses in the so beloved naturalistic art style so popular at the Turn-of-the-Century. Ever-so-softly hand painted Pink, Burgundy, and Yellow ROSES with luscious greenery.
This particular vintage French china mold is actually called a 'chop plate', and is entirely flat across 90% of its surface (curving up only slightly at the edges) such that it lends itself perfectly to being used as a ROUND DRESSER TRAY, as well as a magnificent WALL ART PLAQUE hanging.
This beauty portrays such a graceful floral art composition. One can almost feel the softness of each individual rose petal ~ nestled in gorgeous variegated leaves and foliage and delicate background tones ~ Just Beautiful ~ the colors for this tray are just so peaceful and presents an almost tranquil setting.
In Excellent condition, no chips, cracks, surface scratches or paint loss. There is one very small bubble pop underglaze, underneath near the rim and one small area underneath where the glaze didn't seal during the firing process. This is underneath and in no way does this take away from the beauty of this piece, this is meant for accuracy purposes only. Bears the T&V LIMOGES FRANCE pottery underglaze hallmark in green, used by Tressemann & Vogt, ca 1892 - 1907. Please email me if you have any questions. Thank you for viewing my "pretties".
