The coloring and veining on this antique marble tray is gorgeous and the little bronze Pug dog isn’t bad either. It is solid bronze and sitting up straight as an arrow sporting a bandage wrapped around it’s head tied in a knot at the top. This was a very popular Victorian theme for dogs and people denoting a toothache. The lovely tray has four bronze ball feet on each bottom corner and measures 6 inches long by 5 inches deep with the Pug sitting 2 inches tall and is unmarked. I believe it is is dresser tray as it has an indent for holding jewelry or pins and would date it right around 1900. It has a few fleabite chips to top edges and one area on right corner that is rough all of which you have to look very close to see. Bottom edge has a few small chips and a half inch repair which I show in the last photo. Keep in mind photos are magnified in fact I’ve owned this piece for many years and never noticed the repair till now. It’s a beautiful piece and vey uncommon as I’ve never seen another.
