Gorgeous 19th Century Hand painted Tole Tray with a beautiful large floral design in muted European colors of pink, apricot, wine, cream, gold, yellow and green. Enhanced by well painted foliage in subtle colors of garden greens, this was painted with great care and skill, of heirloom quality. The center is embellished with exceptional flowers, including roses, dahlia's, lilies of the valley, asters, a tulip and other old world favorites. Outstanding gilt flourishes and petit flowers embellish the rim and cut out handles of this stunning tray.
An heirloom example of the old tole pieces so beloved by collectors for their masterful painting. There is wear, and some small areas of missing paint on the front as shown, commensurate with the age of this tray. The black background has some alligatoring. Perfect to display with your French Tole Peinte Trays, highly collectible, and so decorative. Display as wall art, on a low table with your flowers and candles, or to serve tea in front of the fire.
