Exceptional hand painted Black Chippendale Toleware Tray with a rare center floral bouquet. The center artwork has stunning detailed flowers, including violets, a pansy, bleeding hearts and morning glory, as well as many other garden favorites. Rich colors of purple, lavender, pink, blue, green, apricot, peach, yellow and a touch of red on a black ground. Fabulous 3 inch raised rim with charming hand painted gilt leaves & flowers, signed by the artist, G. Dunbar.
Well painted by an accomplished artist, this is in good collectible antique condition with some usage wear chips here and there, which do show a bit more due to the camera's reflective flash, nothing detracting from the beauty of this tray. If you collect one-of-a-kind discoveries, this is a treasure to express your style and add to your heirloom collection. Measures 24" x 18". A divine tray.
