Early Mottahedeh piece with the Diplomatic Eagle in brown (no red and blue on the shield), blue and gold border. It's a leaf shape tray, quite heavy, about 8" x 6" overall.
This one has no markings, but came to us with a matching dish with the Mottahedeh faintly scratched in by hand on the back.
This has been used, and has very worn gold trim. No chips or cracks, some soil marks and a makers flaw to the unglazed bottom.
This piece is a actually a surprisingly good reproduction of an antique Chinese export porcelain in character, I was impressed! Newer (Vista Alegre) Mottahedeh pieces just are not of the same feel.
