This pretty little one-handled heart-shaped nappy is hand-painted with delicate wild roses and signed by the artist. Three open baby pink blossoms with buttery yellow centers dot the trailing vine of dusky green leaves. Additional leaves in softest blue and gray back the rose vine, and a pair of rosebuds just beginning to show pink within the green sepals marks the two ends of the vine. The rim of the dish is a porcelain border of cut-out open hearts, painted in pale baby blue. A single raised handle covered in gold sits at the center top of the dish.
The heart-shaped dish is 6-inches across by 5-1/2 inches from the top to the tip of the heart. The rim rises about 3/4-inches off of the table, and the handle has a depth of about 5/8-inch.
There are three old tiny nicks on the circular foot that do not impact stability. There is also a small yellowish stain on the foot, so it is not seen from the front. The gold handle shows a minimal amount of wear. This vintage piece may have minor flaws such as tiny surface scratches or slight fading. There are no chips or cracks.
It is signed by the artist along the stem of one of the lower buds, the signature looks like “S. Udrey 21.” If it is in fact, “21,” I can attest that this item was packed away for several years, and it does not reference the current year! There is no maker's mark.
