Probably an undertray for a fruit basket, this oval tray has a pierced border, and a dramatic painted decoration of stylized feather or leaf motifs. Colors are red, orange and yellow, with the stripings in deep brownish red. Unmarked. English, ca. 1825.
Size: Approximately 10.375" long, 8.25" wide.
Condition: Very good. Some discoloration. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
