It's an olive tray. Possibly Turkish?

That is a lovely olive dish! I have 2 here at home but they are nothing fancy like the one y’all have pictured.

I think this can be used to serve bread, like Baguette, or any type of Relish - A Relish Dish.

It’s an olive dish, pottery, with painted olive branches, marked “CIC CHINA SW” on back, modern.

An olive server. If I'm not mistaken, they are olives shown on the branches in the decoration .

I have one exactly like it, it is for olives, but works well
for any small condiment.
