Fine Art Nouveau Austrian porcelain perfume / vanity tray featuring a beautiful central transfer cherub portrait scene with a powder blue embossed and scalloped border is being offered for your consideration. The centered scene depicts a child-like winged cherub contemplates his reflection in a foliage surrounded pool while winged meadow visitors fly overhead and a frog watches. The center decoration is near perfect and the surface of the tray is in very clean, bright and shiny condition; on close inspection a few very light short scuff marks are all we detect. The tray measures 9 inches by 6 3/4 inches and it has only a minimal amount of any of it's gold edging remaining. We can find no chips, cracks or hairlines; there are the era typical specks of iron, dust 'bumps' and glaze pits from its manufacturing that attest to its age, nothing in our opinion that detracts from its stunning appeal only that that affirms its age and authenticity. The bottom is unglazed and it is marked with the blue mark of the Porcelain Factory Victoria, and has the wording Victoria, Carlsbad and Austria, indication production between 1891-1918 and with 2 slash marks which are struck into the base below the mark. What a beautiful piece of art for a wall or a shelf, an addition of beauty to any collection or a wonderful decorative accent to any fine decor! (J9373)
