A Very Good Quality Mid 19th Century Papier Mache Tray On Stand, Or Coffee Table, Having Extremely Attractive Hand Painted And Gilded Decoration To Try Top With Elegant Shaped Edge, Raised On Later Bamboo Effect Tapered Leg Stand.
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 little Papier Mache tray. It is now an attractive and functional coffee table or even just side table, with the added bonus that the tray is still removable and can therefore be used as an actual tray for carrying things around on when required.
This particular tray is a nice, relatively small size, which is big enough to be practical but not so big it would overpower anything else in a room. Also it is found in largely excellent condition with just some minor old marks, scratches, scuffs and dents that can be expected on an object of this age which has been used significantly throughout the many years of its life. Another nice feature is the elegant shaped sides.
The tray table is in good, clean condition and ready to go straight into use having been attended to in our workshops by our trained antique furniture restorers before being offered for sale by us.
