We used this tray in our Brick & Mortar Store and at Antiques Shows for many years. We displayed Jewelry on the tray and Stick Pins in the circular Velvet covered Cork. Originally it was an Ink Stand, but the cap was missing... It is Heavy white Metal with a Gold Finish that is pretty nice. It is a pretty piece and something not easy to find. Its 9 & 1/2" long and about 6" wide. Other than a small spot/stain in the tray and the Ink Cap gone its in very nice condition.
