An English Victorian period George Jones majolica serving tray from the 19th century, with strawberries and flowers. Created in England during the reign of Queen Victoria, this majolica serving tray features an oblong body adorned with a delicate décor of raised strawberries and white / light pink flowers, standing out beautifully on a brown ground. Showcasing semi-circular sections on the sides, the tray is stamped with the British Pattern Registry Office lozenge on the underside. Majolica produced by George Jones rivals that of Minton and Wedgwood in both design and workmanship. George Jones won a medal at the Paris Exhibition in 1867 and received acclaim at exhibitions in London (1871), Vienna (1873) and Sydney (1876). With its charming lines and lovely décor, this 19th century English George Jones serving tray will make for a nice decorative accentuation in any home, particularly in a dining room or kitchen.
