Bold and vivid summer flowers are painted in shades of sunny yellow, rust, and red, accented with green leaves in varying shapes and shades of green. The applied grape decoration and the handle of this china (porcelain) "celery" tray helps to make this shape a popular one with collectors. The pattern is known as Melody and was manufactured in the 1940's by Southern Potteries. Measures approx. 10 3/4" by 6 5/8” by and 2 3/4" high at the handle. Tray is in good condition with mild crazing and a few light stains-no chips.
