An antique porcelain tea plate that features a dainty blue bonnet decor with a background of pale yellow and white. There is a unique finger hold that is encrusted with gold which helps for passing the plate at tea time. This was most likely used for petit fours, cookies, small sandwiches or pastries.

Hallmarked on the back with the Limoges La Porcelaine Limousine mark from the Martial Redon Limoges Factory mark 1 which tells us that this was manufactured c. 1905. Also, we believe the artist Van was a professional studio artist. Studio artists during this time always signed on the front of pieces they personally decorated.

Measuring 8 1/2 inches diameter; almost the size of a dinner plate and is without damage. A very unique piece and lovely plate to add to your Limoges collection. We have never seen another like it.
