This tray is 9.5" long x 5.25" wide x .5" high and has a raised, painted mark on the bottom. This tray is quite thick and it is apparently fine porcelain, not just ceramic. Parts of the design are definitely transfers, I think, but other parts appear to be hand painted. When I bought it, I thought it was all done with transfers, but it was so colorful that I could not resist as it was quite inexpensive. The design appears to be flat in my images but the edges of each individual component are raised and some of the components appear to have been incised before being decorated. That can be seen, to an extent, in the extreme left of the first image and to a greater extent in the third image. I was surprised by the quality of the piece when it came. Not sure of its intended use. I have not tried to determine who made it, yet.
