This is a very well painted Limoges Dresser Tray. The artist has painted exquisite pink roses with ruby shadings, cascading from top to the bottom (or bottom to the top, whichever way you turn display it) of the tray. The artistry shows the many layers of petals from the center of the bud to the flat, opened petals at the base. The addition of stems, leaves and buds complete the picture. The background colors accent the roses perfectly. There is a thin band of gold on the edge.
The tray measures 11" long and almost 8 1/4" wide.
It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines. The painting is exquisite, the colors are beautiful.
It is marked with Planemaison underglaze mark, 1890's-1910.
