Object Description

A Delightful Mid 19th Century Papier Mache Tray Having
Elegant Shaped Sides With Gilded And Hand Painted
Decoration Raised On Later Faux Bamboo Design
Legs And Frame To Form A Coffee Table

(What better way to look after the environment than to
recycle beautiful, old, antique objects with little purpose
in the modern world and give them a new purpose.
Thats exactly what’s happened to this pretty Papier Mache
tray. It is now a very attractive and very functional coffee
table, or even just side table. The actual tray itself is in good
condition although there are certainly signs that it has seen
plenty of use throughout its life. There are a various old
cracks and digs and some of the gilded decoration around
the edge has been re-touched at some point. The painted
decoration itself is in excellent condition and extremely
vivid in design. The legs are a fairly typical and relatively
modern hardwood bamboo type design and the tray is
fixed to the base meaning there is no danger of it sliding
around on the top should somebody knock it.)
