19th Century Floral Painted Boudoir Tray (hw1188)

This is a very rare and very beautiful handmade, antique tray. It dates to the early Victorian era (circa 1840) and is craftsman-made from leather, handstitched with very fine twine. The tray is entirely hand painted and adorned with the most exquisitely detailed flowers and Aubusson style decor and is believed to herald from France. The green of the tray is a pretty shade of soft moss green and the freehand,gold pin lining shows how talented this artist was. The stitches can be seen around the base and rim, and also at the joins within the handles. Interestingly, this type of floral decoration was painted onto early and mid 20th century furniture, and it is known that this style of painted furniture was mimicking antique pieces such as this tray, which date from the late 18th and early 19th century - although the 20th century decoration was rarely as detailed as the florals on this tray.

Decorative, painted wares such as this tray were found in the homes of the very wealthy and it is extremely rare to see such an old and beautiful tray outside of a museum or stately home. The tray is approximately 36cm by 30cm and 12cm high at the handles. It is in excellent antique condition with some wear to the painted finish (mainly at edges) and some movement where the edges join at the handles. The base has a subtle undulation to it. The main large floral decoration is in superb condition.
