This little vintage hand-painted china dish would be appropriate for use as a serving dish for candy, nuts, olives, or any thing similar. There is no mark to indicate a maker of the china blank, but the piece is signed by the artist, H. C. Culin (I have another piece for sale by the same artist). It's very well painted with pink old roses on a very pale pastel background. The edge and the handle are trimmed with gold that shows little wear. It's 5-3/4" x 4-7/8" and in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
