Vintage Black Hand Painted Tole Tray with Grapes, such a beautiful fruit design. Enhanced by well painted foliage in subtle colors of garden greens, this was painted with great care and skill, signed by the artist. Although not antique, I bought this for the exceptional painting and bright, fresh green colors.
An exceptional example of smaller tole pieces so beloved by collectors for their masterful painting. This size works so well on a shelf, or hung with paintings. There is wear, two scratches on the right grape leaf. The gilding around the tray has worn, commensurate with the age of this tray.
