Antique English Gilded Papier Mache Tray Table, Scallop Profile, circa 1885

A lovely antique English papier mache tray from England circa 1885 mounted on a custom stand. Papier mache was a traditional method used to create a paste that consisted of water and flour to create an adhesive for paper to hold together. Please look at the elegant scalloped edge of this nineteenth century tray. The movement of the edge provides an interesting contrast to the overall decoration of golden bamboo stalks. The black lacquer background is a wonderful complement to the gold colour of the naturalistic form of the bamboo. The tray is quite deep with a flat bottom and perfectly suited for use as a table. The custom stand dates from the early twentieth century and was made to transform the tray into an attractive cocktail table. The wood has been turned to resemble bamboo on all four legs with a cross stretcher in an X form that connects the legs and provides stability. The stand has also been painted black to match the tray and decorated with gilded highlights. This charming table will be a welcome addition either between two chairs or as a coffee table placed in front of a sofa.
