I got the email in my inbox just now.

This is an ice cream tray made by Haviland and Co of Limoges, France in 1876-77.

An ice cream tray would have held a square of ice cream and there would have been matching serving dishes.

The set was purchased as blank white china and decorated at home by the person that wrote the date on the back in 1877.

This was a common hobby for ladies back then. Learning the art of painting china was like scrap booking is today.

This ice cream tray with a hand painted design has a current value of $75 to $100.00 retail.
