This is a French Limoges, Delineres & Co, dresser tray, professionally decorated in France. The age is 19th century, circa 1894 to 1900.

The tray is 11 ¼” long and 8 ¼” wide, with a fleur-de-lis mold.

This specific tray is marked by the decorating studio and the artist on the underside in blue. The artist is A. Janat and the artist is known for artistic work of birds on Limoges porcelain in the Limousin region. There is a monogram of aj in lower case and it is for the artist. The word for the decorating studio is in blue, and it reads Limousin, or perhaps the word is merely for the region.

The tray has a raised design around the rim of scrolls and fleur-de-lis.

The painting is of two birds in flight, against a blue sky with white clouds. The design was hand painted by the artist in blue, then glazed and fired.

There are no chips, cracks or crazing.

The flat underside is unglazed or bisque, indicating the function was for use as a dresser tray.

The green mark is D&Co underscored by France, for Delinieres & Co, the Limoges porcelain maker. There is also a symbol painted with white enamel. Plus there are the decorating marks in blue, which I already described.
