    something i found on a 10p table at a boot sale

    its quite crudely done, but has a little charm i think

    not sure what it is to be honest, just a little tray ?

    looks to have a bit of age though

    any thoughts appreciated

    Very sweet, charlie. A sauce/relish/small thingies dish, and part of a set I think. One of those sets that form a roundish shape when put together. I'm sure there is a proper name for it.:confused:;)

    Too shallow for a brush washer.

    This is described as a sweetmeat tray. Appears to be a bit larger.

    Perhaps this shape works better?

    I'm surprised by the number of configurations these come in.

    Good match. Now you only have to go back to the boot sale and find the other eight.

    Nathan Lindop 1: “?” 2: “!”

    Certainly Chinese and late Qing Dynasty famille rose Sweetmeat dish. Oriental ceramics confuse me still but I think theyre probably 1860-1920. And it would have been part of a set. Pretty sweet for 10p, great spot!

    Another similarly decorated example:
