A fine quality early 1820's English Regency serving tray. It is a lovely large scale rectangular, hand made, hand painted and lacquered papier mache tray. It is ebonized black with gilt floral and foliate decorations and has a shaped edge. It is made by Clay of King Street, Covent Garden, England (1770-1860). In 1772, Henry Clay patented a durable form of papier-mâché known as a 'heat-resisting paperware'. It could be carved, cut and lacquered like wood or metal, with the added advantage that it was lightweight and did not warp. Such a stable material was ideal as a support for japanned decoration as used on this tray.

Dimensions: 30.5"L x 3.125"W x 23"H

Condition: Very good
