This unusual bronze card tray was created with the figure in relief. She has long flowing hair, and is wearing either a bathing suit or a beach dress. The background is stylized as water. The multipurpose tray is a typical item of the Art Nouveau era, although the subject matter and execution is quite different. It is a heavy piece for its size.
Country of Origin: Austria.
Size: 6 3/8 “ (16 cm) long and 2 3/4 “ (9.5 cm) wide.
