This Limoges dresser tray is beautifully painted with delicate & dainty purple/blue violets with their green leaves tucked around them. The violets cascade fro top to bottom on a very pale yellow background with mauve purple border. The border is accented with th continuous band of gold which ends in a lovely ribbony type handle. I can just imagine small bottles of perfume resting on this tray when it was decorated well over one hundred years ago.
The tray measures almost 9 1/2" long and 6 5/8" wide.
It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, hairlines or wear. What a beauty!
It is marked with Gerard, Dufraisseix & Abbot mark 1, 1900 and after.
