Old Soda Fountain Tray with Waitress Serving Ice Cream
This beautiful vintage serving tray was typically stamped with an advertiser such as an ice cream company or soda fountain shop. A very pretty young woman with rosy cheeks and golden locks presents a tray with four different flavors of ice cream in small sherbet dishes. The gold edge of the tray has a repeating art nouveau design which frames the main image. The gold circle is where the advertising would have been stamped.
It measures about 13 3/8" wide by 13 1/4" high and 1" deep. Overall this is an attractive tray with good color and gloss that displays well. The main image is in nice condition with minor wear and a few light scratches, the worst being across her forehead and on her left cheek. The gilding along the outer edge and in the corners is dark from wear and use. There is also a blemish at the top edge of the large gold circle. There is a series of very tiny bubbles that run across the center horizontally which are noticeable when turned in certain light. On the back there are some streaks where something has dripped removing some of the paint.
