Vintage Mexican Folk Art Batea Floral Tole Wood Tray Platter 15"

This wooden tray was hand-carved and hand-painted in Mexico a very long time ago and yet is still in very good condition.

The folk art was frequently adorned with bright flowers on black, as is the case here, with two yellow, two red, and two blue flowers surrounding a purple center blossom with other daisies, buds, and exotic greenery as a flourish of accents.

These batea platters--or shallow large trays--could be used to bring morning mango juice or evening cocktails to guests, but nowadays as the originals become scarce, they are frequently mounted on walls as they are so exquisite in design and color.

It measures 15" across, is painted brown on the back (with tiny spots of white)and there is a surface crack in the paint on the front which certainly does not go deep into the wood. (See photos for condition particulars.)
