Tray Beau

English Arts & Crafts Brass Tray with Hand-Tooled Scrolling Botanical Decoration (LEO Design)

Here's an exquisite gift idea for Mother's Day—as beautifully executed a piece of metalsmithing as we’ve ever had.  A scrolling, Art Nouveau botanical motif is repeatedly rendered in each quadrant of this octagonal brass tray.  Not only is the design beautifully voluptuous, it is executed crisply and with great precision—obviously the work of a master craftsman.  This tray typifies the “more-formal” dimension of the British Arts & Crafts movement, though it would also be sensational (and useful!) in either a highly-modern or rustic country milieu.

Another tray on Friday.
