From our personal collection: Exquisite signed "Nippon" tray that we have enjoyed owning for over three decades.
The tranquil scene depicts an elegant woman at the edge of a lake with water lilies and three doves around her (one is perched
on her right hand). She is looking down at the pebbles in the water, dressed in a long pale blue gown with a flowing cape on her back.
There are pastel toned trees in the background along with violet profiled mountains. The edge of the tray has the original
delicate gilt and enamel drop decorations. The color tones and subject are particularly well done. We have seem a lot of Nippon
of the years, and nothing like this special tray. Circa: Early 20th century
Condition: Good original Dimensions: 8 1/2" H x 12" W x 3/4" D
