Square Oriental trinket dish, antique black enamel with floral sprays
|Online Auction Description|
Small tray to use as a ring holder or pin dish. Black enamel with sprays of pink flowers as decoration. Stems and a few leaves are a very pale green; the other leaves are a soft blue. The underside is the pale blue typical of enamel work in China in the Nineteenth Century.
There is no mark or stamp on the bottom which indicates that it pre-dates the requirement to show country of origin, which started in 1891.
There is one chip on the edge of the lip, underneath, where the base metal [probably brass] shows through.
There is a similar paint chip on the upper lip and you can find a few tiny dings along the rim but you have to hunt for them. It is, after all, very old!
It measures 3 1/16â x 3 1/16â - depth about 1/2â
A beautiful and exotic item for the very ordinary purpose of keeping those pins, coins and other small items from disappearing just when you need them most!
