Antique French porcelain tray with birds of paradise
A beautiful old porcelain tray, the central birds of paradise in a combination of transferware and hand painted finishing, the green scalloped edging is handpainted. The back has been marked D./5/1798 in green paint, I can also see a faint impression mark "D. 5" - It is most likely a French or German item and D.5 being the item's shape number, 1798 being the decorator's number. This item dates ca 1880-1910. It would look great as a key tray in the entryway, as a decorative tray on the wall or as a small serving tray.
Its condition is very good without chips, cracks or breaks. There are some signs of age and wear, and some small surface scartches to the front.
Size: 11 x 8 inches.
Weight: 500 grams
