Couroc of Monterey Hispano Suiza 1928 Car TrayCouroc of Monterey Hispano Suiza 1928 Car TrayCouroc of Monterey Hispano Suiza 1928 Car Tray

This is a very beautiful Couroc tray featuring a car with inlays of wood, metals, turquoise and lapis. This tray is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks or damage of any kind. It measures 12 1/4”H x 18 3/4”W. These were designed and created by Guthrie Courvoisier and his wife Moira Wallace. He owned the Courvoisier Gallery which Walt Disney granted exclusive rights to market original animation art. During the war he closed his gallery to create plastics for the war effort. His wartime efforts gained him valuable experience with different plastics and he developed a proprietary formula of phenolic resin that was extremely durable to form into trays and bowls. The formula is resistant to alcohol, boiling water and cigarette burns.
Courvoisier’s wife Moira Wallace, a talented artist led the design team for Couroc and worked on many inlay techniques involving woods, metals, shell, coins, plants, crystals, abalone, coral, turquoise and lapis. They also developed beautiful bar glasses to match their trays. These pieces were sold in many high end department stores. They are wonderful Mid Century works of art.
