Florentine Italy Gold Gesso Over Wood Round Tray Painted Design 1960's 70's
SALE Here's another great Florentine Gold Gesso Over Wood Round Tray Made In Italy. The tag is gone, but it was purchased with another rectangular tray from the same place, and I'm certain it is Italian made as well. This one is nearly 12" across the widest portion of the ornately scalloped edges, and has great designs in the center in red, black, greenish gold and cream. Even just inside the scalloped border, there are more wavy designs carved into the wood with Antiqued green paint covering the gold. Even though this design is slightly different than the other rectangular tray I bought with it, they both look great used together. The red painted designs in the middle remind me of puzzle pieces, but they also have a bit of a Fleur de Lis looking design to them.
This beautiful tray has a few dings to the gold gesso so that you can see the natural wood, but displayed on an easel or hung on a wall, I don't believe you would ever see them. The most obvious one is on the outside edge, and measures 1/2"-1" spots where the gold is gone, but I actually had to hunt for the other places because they are so small I didn't even see them until inspecting very carefully for this description. However, I want to make sure and disclose any information I would want to know myself when purchasing. This is just a beautiful tray, though, and I really don't think you would be disappointed at all to add to your collection. Perfect for the Shabby Chic, French Country, or whatever style home you are decorating. Because of the ornate edges, it would also be great even in a Victorian home. I love the way different styles are being used in the Makeover Homes shown on TV, so this throwback from the 1960's or 70's will be sure to please!
