These wonderful 19th to early 20th century hand carved Asian trays were most popular during the reign of French Emperor Napoleon III and influenced by the aesthetic to Asian goods that his wife, the Empress Eugenie, brought to society. You see it in the Fontainbleau Palace outside Paris, and in other of the high Victorian era homes her special talent for influencing style spread through Europe and UK.
It's a wonderful whimsical play of animals, bugs, bamboo and in this one even carved woven basketweave lattice. The tray is for fruit or service at table, but we love these to hold rolled guest towels and soaps, scents in a bathroom, too. You'll find the perfect way to make multiple uses of it. Some just hang them on the wall as decorative wall art. I'm kind of in love with this one with the bird and spider.Very good to excellent condition for age and type. We'd date it c. Wonderful form and carving of the bird and spider and every aspect is well preserved. A scrape here or there for decades of use, but no chips or breaks, no evidence of any restorations. Large at 15.5" x 9.5" and it's 1 in depth. Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images.
