Stunning hand beaded embroidery tea tray. Aquatic floral design in an ebonised wooden tray. Embellished with decorative gilded brass work, including the two handles and four brass feet.
The exquisite bead-work is made up of thousands of tiny seed beads hand sewn to create a beautiful aquatic and floral design on a deep red / burgundy background.
Measures: 23 1/2 inches x 10 1/2 inches and 2 1/2 inches high
The condition is excellent for the age and amount of use this tray must have had over so many years. No bead loss to note. Some expected surface signs of age and wear commensurate with the age. But over all a stunning, rare thing which is in remarkably good condition for the age and use that it has seen.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
