About the object

A Very Attractive And Rare Mid 19th Century Papier
Mache Tray With Unusual Red Lacquered And Gilded 
Floral Decoration Fixed Onto Elegant Later Swivel Stand

(What better way to look after the environment than to
recycle beautiful, old, antique objects with little purpose
in the modern world and give them a new purpose. Thats 
exactly what's happened to this pretty little Papier Mache
tray. It is now a very attractive and very functional coffee table
or even just side table.

This particular tray is quite rare having the red lacquered 
and gilded decoration as opposed to the normal black 
background which is found on by far the majority. It is
large enough to be functional and in excellent condition with
just the usual old marks and scratches, scuffs and dents that 
are to be expected in an object of this age.)
