Vintage box or trinket dish from Carltonware's beautiful series, Rouge Royale.
If you haven't seen this series, the glaze is a gorgeous deep burgundy which must have gold in its glaze because of the richness of the color. It is then trimmed in gold on its lid hand and along the edge of its fluted rim. The inside glaze is a cream lustre. It is signed Carlton Ware Made in England Trade Mark Rouge Royale.
Measures approximately 6" by 5" by 2-1/2" high (including the handle). Beautiful vintage condition - the burgundy is gleaming and the gilt on the handle is unworn. There is a very fine gilt trim highlighting the fluted edge which has some wear here and there, but which is not noticeable because it so blends in with the burgundy glaze (I was not able to capture it even with the macro lens). There is some crazing on the underside (cream section - see photo)where the signature is and some slight crazing on the inside bottom edge. There is no crazing in any of the burgundy glaze.
Lovely piece - if you collect this series, you know how beautiful it is in person.
