New English Receipts – part XV

English Arts & Crafts Brass Pen Tray with Stylized Botanical Design (LEO Design)

We end our little parade of newly-acquired English items with this English Arts & Crafts brass pen tray.  Made about 1900, it is stamped with an exuberant assortment of stylized botanicals.  Intended to hold pens or other desk accoutrements, it would also be perfect at bedside to hold rings, bookmarks, collar stays or a small collection of other jewelry items.
