English Victorian Papier-mâché Tray
This is a large papier-mâché tray decorated with mother-of-pearl and painted flowers. Gold gilt painting of flowers and swirls around the scalloped edges. As you can see on the scalloped edge, there is a section of papier-mâché that has been broken off.
The tray measures 24 1/2 inches by 18 1/2 inches. A beautiful example of 19th century decorative arts.
