Hand painted china is so beautiful if done in a factory decorating department, professional studio or a small home-studio environment. During the late 1800's and early 1900's china decorating became a favorite hobby of many American ladies who would purchase china blanks from various companies and create their own works of art.
These beautiful items were executed in a home-studio environment by a talented individual. They are not artist signed. The set consists of a dresser tray and accompanying basket, both decorated with spring violets nestled among leafy foliage in shades of pastel purple, violet, tan, yellow and greens. The tray measures 10" in length and 6 7/8" in width with a fine gold edge. It carries a back-stamp "La Seynie - Limoges - P.P. - France", indicating the Limoges company of Paroutaud Freres, circa 1903-1917. The gracefully shaped basket measures 5" across and 6" in height and is unmarked. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Lovely set for any decor or room in your house.
