This is a beautiful, large mid 20th century vintage porcelain hard paste Continental trinket dish signed by Fragonard in the center. Jean Honoré Nicolas Fragonard 1732-1806 was a prolific Rococo French artist known for his scenes of romance, love and and an early eroticism for the era. He produced over 550 paintings and died at age 74 in Paris, France. Famously, his works have been reproduced on French porcelain ever since.
