Marseille Faïence Chinoiserie Footed Tray (Bannette).

Circa 1730, attributed to the Leroy Workshop.

The center with two vignettes of courting couples separated by a central flowering plant, a dog chasing a rabbit in the foreground, flowering plants extending into the basin from the long edges, the rope twist handles decorated with tiny dots.

The attribution to the Leroy Workshop is based on the presence of the same striated red found on their more typical 'starfish' decoration.
