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.
This lovely hand painted dresser/serving tray, circa 1910, was executed in a home studio by an experienced artist. The rectangular shaped tray has rounded corners and handles which makes it multi-purpose for your dresser or serving needs. The sides flare slightly upward with a handle at each end. It is decorated with clusters of pastel to medium blue and white forget-me-not blossoms nestled among shaded green foliage, with the clusters joined by blue and gold scrolls and intermittent single flowers. The outer border is a pale blue that flows into the creamy center of the tray. The edge and handles are decorated with gold. The tray measures 12" in length, including the handles and 7 7/8" in width. The white-ware porcelain blank is unmarked as to maker and the piece is artist signed "A Dewey". There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
