Beautiful Antique Venetian Chartreuse Opaline Glass Vanity Tray
Beautiful antique glass vanity tray, this is most probably Venetian and is in a very desirable Chartreuse Opaline glass with heavy gilt overlay and enameled decoration. The tray measures 10 1/2" long by 7 3/4" wide, I believe the glass was pour molded as it is slightly irregular to the base but smooth to the top, it was then hand decorated in a rich and ornate style. I estimate the tray dates to the late Victorian period, it came from an old estate where there were many glass items dating to last century. The tray is in good condition for the age, there is some wear to the gilding and also some tiny fleabites on one edge, but no major chips, cracks or other damage - see photos as part of the description. Unusual and lovely item for your antique glass collection, or for a Victorian dresser.
