A lovely antique Haviland Limoges oval double handle bread tray! Vibrant hand painted purple grapes and green leaves are centered on a pale yellow background that shades to a turquoise green. Gilded double handles complete the look. The tray measures 13 7/8" handle to handle x 7 1/4" wide. This piece is free of chips, cracks, and crazing (Limoges porcelain never crazes). Perfect for serving bread, but also wonderful for fruits and cheeses, vegetables, and even meats or fish. And of course it makes a lovely display piece when not in service. It's marked "Haviland France" in green on the reverse; this mark was used from 1894 to 1931.
