This item came to me as sort of a mystery. Does it belong on a woman's vanity table or on a sideboard holding cookies--or biscuits, as the English call them? Because of the gold ribbon threaded through the tray, I'd say a vanity item. How would you wash it otherwise?

It has a MacIntosh inspired decoration with original ribbon of rayon, which was invented by this time. It's in wonderful condition--some tarnish on the metal which feels like a very light steel to me. The tray base itself is porcelain and undamaged. There are no marks on the bottom, and I found none on the metal.

Color is always a challenge with these new energy saving lightbulbs. The ribbon is a very aged gold, the porcelain is very white. The decoration is dark green, and the metal parts are a very silvery lightweight steel. At least, that's what it feels like to me.

The design is timeless, even in our more minimalist inspired era today. And really beautiful. Dimensions are: 24" around by 8" across by 2" deep. Thank you for checking in.
