Object Description

A Very Attractive Mid 19th Century Papier Mache Tray Having 
Delightful Painted And Gilded Decoration Housed On Later Ebonised
And Gilded Turned Tapering Leg Stand

(Often originally made in sets of three that varied in size paper mâché 
trays became extremely popular in the early 19th century and continued
to be so throughout Victorian times. They were very rarely made with
stands originally and in fact were more often than not hung on the walls
as a type of art/decoration. Nowadays of course they make for incredibly
elegant, attractive and functional coffee type tables when placed onto 
later made stands. This particular example has exceptional decoration 
and is very, very attractive. It also has a much superior quality stand to 
normal with elegant tapering legs and gilded decoration.)
