Beautiful old French Limoges porcelain ashtray with a lovely portrayal of a courting couple. The young woman offers roses to a young man who is playing music in a detailed pastoral scene. The central scene is on the base of the ashtray on a deep cobalt blue field further decorated with heavy gold gilt floral accents and tendrils.
It is back marked in gold within a crowned oval, “PORCELAINE FLORANCE LIMOGES – FABRIQUEE EN LA CITE DE LIMOGES – MADE IN FRANCE”. Dates to the 1950s or earlier.
Dimensions are 5 inches by 4 inches.
Excellent to mint condition. No cracks, chips or repairs. No wear to paint or gold gilt. Appears to have never been used.
A lovely piece of French Limoges perfect for display or for use as an ashtray or trinket dish.
