Delightful smaller Hand Painted Black Tole Tray, with central floral design featuring a blooming pink rose, fresh faced daisies, and small flowers gardeners adore. Painted on a thin, hand cut little tray with a Chippendale shape, perhaps by a Sunday painter.
Ornate gilt scroll detailing around the Chippendale border. Carefully kept by a collector, trays like this are collected for their charm. There is aging and the rim is bent here and there as you would expect. Display with your antique French, English and American toleware collection, display on a mantel, or even a shelf, the miniature size of this tray makes it perfect for that.
