Exquisitely painted by an accomplished artist and signed, this Tole Tray is stunning! The shape is known as a Chippendale shape, with a lovely stand up scalloped edge accented in hand painted gilded flourishes, this tray is one of the prettiest we have found, with a huge center bouquet. The tray is a dark Cream, the perfect background for the bright colored central bouquet.
Absolutely superb artwork features flowers of all kinds in stunning Pink, Rose, Violet, Lavender, Purple, Yellow, Gold, Blue, Green and Cream on a dark Cream ground. The colors are as vibrant as the day they were painted. I look for trays everywhere, and rarely do I find one like this. A true gem for your collection. rare to find, due to the colors used in the hand painted central bouquet, the brightest pinks, lavenders and purples so beautifully mixed by the artist. You could search forever for a tray with these bright colors, they just are that rare. This tray can literally make the colors of your room pop, and tie your color scheme together. That is the beauty of these old hand painted creations, one gorgeous tray, displayed with care, can tie all the colors in your room together, lend a touch of history and charm, and warms up a room to make your beautiful house a home. There is some edge wear as would be expected of a tray of this age, but no denting at all. The center bouquet is pristine (this is where most of the value of a vintage tray is) A delight to find a tray of this size that was meant to be used as a tray table in this fabulous condition. A true gem for your collection. Measures 27" x 19~1/2", large enough to use as a tray table. Spectacular!
