We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. A superb Napoleon III era c.
1850-70 hand carved teak tray, likely Asian and part of the Chinoiserie aesthetic pieces brought into fashion by the Empress Eugenie, wife of the last Emperor of France, Louis-Napoleon, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, and known simply as Napoleon III. The couple's impact on decorative fashion might have been their highest of any influences during the tenure of his Emperorship.
Eugenie's tastes flowed worldwide during the Victorian era. These fabulous old carved teak trays were in use in the well-appointed interiors of the day, and remain popular now. As a bar tray, or vanity tray, or a tray in a master suite to hold towels, soaps - you'll find the perfect way to display and enjoy this lovely old one. Beautifully hand carved, a floral array.
I find no signature of the carver, however. Very good to excellent condition for age and type, and the tray is nice and large at 18.75" x 10.5" with a depth overall of 1. No handles on this one, no evidence there were ever any.The carving has no chips, no losses, no cracks nor chips on the tray. Very light evidences of rubs or use, perhaps the bottoms of a couple of liquor or liqueur carafes or carafon on that upper surface. We've given it a thorough clean, a light waxing that included bees wax and Old English - it's ready to use. We're easy to deal with. Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important!
