Good. Unobtrusive old repair to bottom left corner (approx 5cm). A few minor scuffs to the surface and a 'craquelure' effect to the old varnish. Otherwise gilt decoration 'Very Good', without rubbing or wear. An attractive antique tray in a decent condition.

A Note From Luke

A rather beautiful Early Victorian/William IV papier-mâché tray of a decent size (69cm wide). Lacquered in black with luminous highlights in gilt, and subtle green lily leaves. Is going to make somebody a fabulous drinks tray.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
