This fantastic butterfly wing art tray was probably made in Brazil in the early 1900's. The tray itself is solid mahogany with a trim of wood inlay. It is a combination of reverse painting in black & gold but all the color is made of butterfly wings. It is signed " Rio " at the base of the water on the center of the tray. 18 3/4" long - 10 3/4" deep. Excellent condition. Beautiful wood grain. The overall decor of the tray is water and palm trees. The iridescent color doesn't show up well in photographs but is spectacular when you see it in person.
