A lovely enamel on copper tray in a radiating starburst design hand crafted and signed by noted 1960s enamelist Annemarie Davidson of Sierra Madre, California. Sometimes called "California Cloissonne" and always recognized as mid-century modern.

An unusually large example of Davidson's work -- this circular tray or dish measures 11 inches in diameter. Layers of orange, olive green, and brown enamels create thick glassy areas where the colors overlap.

Large and beautiful -though there is a small visible flaw on one brown enameled ray -- an impact shock faintly noticeable with one's fingernail and visible in the photographs as a pinhead-sized dot. It's at 6 o'clock in the overall view Use the zoom feature on the images to really take a look. The shock mark is surrounded by fine radiating stress lines extending up to 3 cm. There are three stress lines near the center of the tray that can be discerned with a slow and careful caress with one's fingernail. The thickest areas of the glass enamel in the well of the tray have a network of scritching from surface wear. There is a flea bite loss to the very edge. Still beautiful, but priced accordingly.

Signed on the reverse with the artist's distinctive cypher and an adhesive label reading "ANNEMARIE DAVIDSON / handcrafted enamels/ SIERRA MADRE, CALIFORNIA. Two felt table pads are adhered on the reverse.

The last image shows this example with a smaller Davidson piece in the same sunburst design (also available) and other items (sold) to show scale.
