FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS GORGEOUS LEAF SHAPED GRAVY/CONDIMENT SERVER WITH TRAY. IT HAS A STUNNING DELICATE DESIGN WITH DAINTY PINK ROSES WITH LIGHT GREEN LEAVES AND A LIGHT BLUE RIBBON WREATH AND GOLD TRIM. I BELIEVE THE DESIGN IS CALLED BRIDAL WREATH. IN ANY EVENT IT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL! THE RIBBING OF A REAL LEAF IS REFLECTED IN RELIEF ON BOTH PIECES.
THE BOWL IS 6 INCHES LONG AND 4 1/2 INCHES ACROSS AND THE TRAY/DISH IS 7 INCHES LONG AND 5 1/2 INCHES ACROSS. BOTH PIECES ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NO CRACKS OR CRAZING AND ONLY ONE CHIP AT THE TIP OF THE TRAY WHICH ACTUALLY MAKES IT APPEAR TO BE PART OF THE LEAF DESIGN.
THE BACKSTAMP REFLECTS THE ELITE WORKS LIMOGES FRANCE IN RED WHICH INDICATES THE PERIOD OF MANUFACTURE BETWEEN 1900 AND 1940.
