This beautifully detailed peasant woman is an old card receiver. These were used in the early 1900's and the large tray was meant to receive your calling card. Although it looks like bronze this piece is made of spelter or white metal and the tray is probably made of brass. She has long flowing black hair and her ethnic costume is well detailed. She wears jewelry around her neck, arm and ankle as well as earrings. To one side is an urn with a brass liner which could hold a candle or wooden matches. On the other side is an ornate pot which has a brass ashtray insert. The tray is removable and has a post that fits into a fold of her dress for stability. Besides receiving cards the tray could also be used to hold cigarettes.

Overall the condition is very good with minimal wear. There is a little paint loss primarily off her hands where the tray has rubbed when being fit into place as well as the tops of the urn and ashtray. The paint is also chipped off the end of her nose. There are no breaks or cracks in the metal. She measures about 6 3/4" high and about 9" across from urn handle to ashtray.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
