Striking Art Nouveau hand painted pink peonies on a German open handled very versatile porcelain tray, one for muffins, hors d'oeuvres, cookies or anything else you would like to have be the center of attention is being offered for your consideration. This tray is the perfect family or a small gathering buffet size tray for cookies, desserts, sandwiches or just display, etc. The castle stamp on the back of the tray belongs to the Porcelain Factory Kloster of Vessra, of Germany, circa 1900; the tray is also stamped Hand Painted. Beautiful shades of pink and white hand painted peony flowers grace the front of the tray and 90-95% of the rim's gilding remains. It is in beautiful condition; there are light stacking scuff marks of the glaze and the expected era typical production anomalies of tiny glaze skips, iron specs, pits and dust 'bumps'. Note: The white area on the edge of the tray is a reflection from the lights used in the photography; the border is consistent in color. The open handled side of the tray measures 9 3/8 inches across, while the other dimension is 9 inches. A wonderful addition to your collection for use at your next holiday gathering, your next family or gourmet buffet perhaps you'd prefer to just display it; as it would be just as beautiful used gracing your decor, set it out on table, on a stand on a bookshelf or hang it on your wall as ART!
