Outstanding J.P.L. France Limoges 1900's Hand Painted "Blackberry" 10" One-Handle Tray by the Artist, "L. Davis"
Fresh from an estate just north of Chicago in Evanston, Illinois comes this beautiful hand painted J.P.L. France Limoges Fruit Decor Tray.
In 1907, there was a listed China Decorating Studio by S. Davis located in Chicago, Illinois. Most likely this piece. along with other matching pieces, which I will list in the future, were created in the Davis Studio.
This is just an outstanding Limoges France One-Handle or large Nappy Tray measuring 10" long, 7" wide, & about 2-1/2" tall. The Tray has been expertly decorated with large and lifelike "Blackberries", on stem & leaf, against a background of shadow leafing & soft background colors of cream, light cream blue, light cream yellow, & light cream lavender. The accompanying White Flowers have been decorated white enameling highlights giving the presentation almost a 3-dimension appearance. A fancy stem like handle with a raised flower at the end has been decorated in bright gilded gold as has been the fancy scallop outer rim.
The beautiful Limoges "Blackberry" Nappy Tray is in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage with the extensive fire gold nearly pristine !
The gorgeous Tray displays an early 1900 "J.P.L. Limoges France" mark and has been signed by the decorator & Artist, "L. Davis".
More beautiful in appearance the charming Tray is perfect for a counter or small table.
Please feel free to ask questions.
NOTE: As mentioned above....I will be posting matching pieces...including a large Plate, 4-sided Bowl, Pen Tray, TP Holder, & matching Cup, Saucer & Plate Sets.
