For sale is a fantastic antique dated 1829 Scandinavian folk art tray that I purchased from a seller in Pennsylvania. The inside is painted barn red, with the signature "Elze Hans Da???", and the date "1829", and the outside is a teal green. The sides of the bottom are also painted red. The top edges have graceful swirls and scallops, and the long sides have heart cut-outs. The tray was made with wooden pegs, although there are some nails in the construction. The piece has fairly sharp canted sides, and measures about 18 1/2" long, 14 1/2" wide, and 4" deep. It is in nice antique condition, with expected age-related wear, and an aged patina. There is some paint loss on the inside near one corner. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What a fabulous addition to your primitive decor!
*****This a large and fairly heavy tray, so if you are concerned about the cost of shipping, please don't hesitate to contact me, and I'll determine the exact cost to your area. Don't let shipping prevent you from owning this great old tray!*****
