Discover the refined beauty of historical French craftsmanship with this exquisite antique dresser tray. Originating from France, a country renowned for its rich tradition in porcelain artistry, this piece is a testament to the skilled artisans of the past. The tray features delicate hand-painted blue forget-me-nots nestled within a sophisticated gilded scrollwork border that exudes the opulence of the Victorian era. Each stroke and detail on this tray have been carefully applied by hand, showcasing the meticulous attention to detail that is characteristic of French porcelain from the late 19th to early 20th century.


The mark on the base indicates it was produced by CFH/GDM, signifying Charles Field Haviland and Gerard, Dufraisseix & Morel, who were instrumental in producing Limoges porcelain. The CFH mark suggests the piece was crafted between 1882 and 1900, a period when French porcelain was highly coveted for its quality and elegance. The creamy ivory background contrasts with the vibrant gold gilt edges, a technique that was popular among French artisans to accentuate the luxuriousness of the piece.
