Antique hand painted Pouyat French limoges porcelain tray. c:1899. Artist signed, Anna K. Stiotel '99, with green J.P.L. over France backstamp. The painting is quite exquisite, and if it weren't signed Anna K. Stiotel it could easily be mistaken for a Bischoff painting. There is a lot of depth in the painting; it is not just roses on a blank background. No chips, cracks, or repairs. It does have a couple of tiny aging flaws: some white/straw marks on the pink rose and the burdgandy rose, and some wear off the gold on the handle as can be expected for a 100+ year tray. It is 12.5 long x 8.75 wide. Ornately scrolled shape with pierced handles. 5/03brcs
Antique Pouyat Limoges decorative rose plate. c:1890-1932. 7.5 inches wide; green underglaze backstamp: J.P. line over L. France; (the mark is shown in M. Gaston's book.) It appears as though there might be an artist's signature on this, however, it is very hard to tell for sure; see closeup pic where the 2 curved lines are. Very nice fine painting depicting roses. This would make an exquisite, one of a kind gift!
