A vintage porcelain relish tray that features heavy, hand painted gold on the center handle and rim. The interior has a soft beige background and hand painted pink roses and greenery. There is also outlining in black along with trails of black ivy. This is superbly done.
Hallmarked with Japan in blue and we find the signature of artist H.P. Patton on the front of tray. Based on the other pieces we acquired from this artist we would date this to c. 1920s to early 1930s.
Measuring 6.25" diameter we find the back of tray is enameled with a beige color. A piece of this has been dislodged from rest of enameling. This is NOT the porcelain; just the paint.
