Here is a vintage 1950’s-1960’s hand painted Santa with Reindeer Sleigh Christmas Serving Tray. Made in Tilso, Japan, featuring the phrase “Merry Christmas” in gold cursive writing. This vintage tray background is blue. Santa and has reindeer are quite detailed. The look of this piece reminds me of the classic drawings at that time. The deer are prancing through the sky with the grace are so often portrayed. The trays handles are wrapped with some kind of plastic or celluloid material. The colors in the tray’s picture are red, yellow, brown, black and white. The back is black and has spot where the shiny sheen is no longer on. It might be that someone touched up the spot. Which is irregular in shape. Please see the picture. There is a tiny mark above the “mas “. There is a very tiny oval yellow label which I cannot read. The tray is 17 inches long and 11 ¾ inches wide. It does have a slight curve to keep items on the tray without falling off. Shipping weight is 2 pounds. This vintage tray really is a delight to look at as well as very useful.
