SOLD!! Gold “Poppies” Art Nouveau Mayo Bowl & Underplate by Bawo & Dotter Elite Works Limoges – Early 1900s France
Gorgeous piece! Prettier in person than any of the pictures. This is an Art Nouveau mayo dish with underplate, heavily trimmed in gold featuring solid raised gold Poppies with hand painted poppy leaves in green. It is a mayo dish but you could use it for any sauce or gravy as well. The green is not as noticeable in person, it is the gold that stands out. It makes an eye catching display piece.
