This tray with it's wonderful shape and profile of an Art Nouveau lady is delightful. The tray has lovely swirled raised rims to complement our lady's swirling hair. The sterling is in excellent minus condition with no rips, chomps, cracks, dents, deep scratches or repairs. You will find some of that light uneven surface comprised of shallow minute surface indentations as is common and expected on antique silver. The pattern definition is excellent minus with soft curves to the rim swirls and the Art Nouveau lady. Note her beautiful facial features and the light accent lines giving her hair dimension and flow.
I'm not quite sure what this tray's purpose in life was. It could have been for hairpins on a vanity, paperclips on a desk or even a small calling card tray in the home's entry hall. It measures 5 inches tall by 5 3/8 at it's widest point. On the backside of the tray you will find the standard circular Unger Bros. hallmark. A great item for an Art Nouveau or Unger Bros. collection.
