Ultra feminine, fine porcelain trinket dish with lush hand painted pink roses and gilt embellishment. In the shape of a cupped leaf it measures: 7 inches X 6-1/2 inches and is about 1-1/2 inches deep. Minty, beautiful and superb work by a home artist.
In the shape of a maple leaf with veins and stem. A fat, pink cabbage rose is placed at the tips of the leaf. Soft lavender and green accent the roses. These lay on a so soft blue background. The body of the leaf is antique white.
The edges, one turned corner of the leaf and the stem are gilt painted. Standard practice at the time was to use 22K or 24K gold for trim. The application of the gold is generous.
Exquisite! No cracks chips or repairs. Looking with a loupe you may find some light scratches on the gold stem.
The only mark are the artist's initials: B.M.S.
