Seller: evans11 (1,156) 100%, Location: Russellville, Kentucky, Ships to: US, Item: 362645262267 This is an interesting handmade arts & crafts copper tray. It measures 18 3/4” x 11 1/8”. The tray sports wonderful riveted handles. In the center of the tray is an acid cut rendering of a three masted sailing ship, perhaps an 18th century man of war. The tray is not marked so we don’t know who made it. We believe that it was crafted in the first quarter of the 20th century. The tray is in basically good overall original condition. Originally this tray was lacquered and remnants of old lacquer remains on the surface. Fashioned from copper flat stock it has rippling from age and use. There are no dents or repairs. We’ve never done anything to this tray. The surface has random petty spotting which can be removed with a polishing. It probably deserves to be evenly cleaned then left to oxidize into a natural patina similar to what it has now. We’ve chosen to reserve the collector the right to polish the tray or not. The tray is overall sound and the riveted handles are tight. It is being offered as found. It is a nice old item.Please note: Expedited shipping is available upon request.
