Lovely, vintage nappy dish (or lemon dish) with hand painted, burnt orange and dark peach roses. The shape is a stylized leaf. The base color is white. Green is painted in the bowl – darker under the flowers fading to almost white toward the center. Gold swirls and brush strokes adorn the perimeter and handle.
It is 7-1/2″ long by 4-1/2″ wide. The handle is applied inside the bowl of the dish. It is of unknown maker and date. I believe it was probably a blank for “Sunday afternoon painters.” If so, they did a beautiful job.
Very good condition with no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.
