Gorgeous estate hand painted Antique Tole Tray, with rare to find expertly hand painted grapes in the center. The grapes are both dark and light green - they are truly a work of art. The artist initials of L S are painted on the back rim. This artist understood the great masters and the way they painted light. Enhanced by outstanding gilt grapevines and leaf garlands all around the edge.
An heirloom example of the early 19th century French pieces so beloved by collectors for their masterful painting. There is wear to the gilt rim as shown, and to the tray, commensurate with the age of this tray. Perfect to display with your French Tole Peinte Trays, highly collectible, and so decorative.
