Large Victorian Double Rimmed Papier Mache Tray
A very decoratively shaped 19th Century papier mache tray with unusual double rim. This generously proportioned antique papier mache tray is painted with extravagant flowers and foliage in gold and scarlet. The decoration is confined to the outer edges and highlights the beautiful flowing shape of this Victorian papier mache tray, by leaving the centre open the design takes on a very dramatic effect. The condition of the tray is very good, there are minor scratches to the front and scuffs to the back as one would expect from a piece of this age. These are minor and do not detract from the appearance of the tray as can be clearly seen in the photographs. The painted decoration is in very good condition, with little wear and bright and vibrant colours. This superb Victorian papier mache tray would make a very decorative addition to any interior scheme, either as an eye catching wall decoration or as a stunning table top.
