Beautiful MZ Austria Vintage 1900's Hand Painted "Blackberry" 9" Fruit Tray by Artist, "L. Davis"
Fresh from an estate just north of Chicago in Evanston, Illinois comes this beautiful hand painted vintage MZ Austria Fruit 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 have listed were created in the Davis Studio.
This is a superb MZ Austria hand painted Fruit Tray, which measures about 9" long & 3" wide, and displays lifelike "Blackberries", on stem & leaf, against a soft background colors of cream, light cream blue, & light cream lavender. The accompanying White Flowers have been decorated with white enameling highlights giving the presentation almost a 3-dimension appearance. Additionally, the beautiful Tray has been accent, on all sides with gilded gold.
The beautiful MZ hand painted "Blackberry" Tray is in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage with the extensive fire gold excellent throughout with some minor light rim wear.
The gorgeous hand painted "Blackberry" Tray displays an early 1900 "MZ Austria" mark. The Tray has not been signed, but was part of a partial Luncheon Set with other pieces being signed by the decorator and Artist, "L. Davis".
The superb charming "Blackberry" Tray is perfect for a bath, vanity, dresser, counter, or small table.
Please feel free to ask questions.
NOTE: As mentioned above....I have posted matching pieces...including a large Plate, 4-sided Bowl, & matching Cup, Saucer & Plate Sets. Most of these additional pieces have been signed by the Artist, "L. Davis".
