Tray Chic

British Arts & Crafts Tray with Entwined Shamrocks, Thistles and Tudor Roses (LEO Design)

I've assembled a collection of handsome English Arts & Crafts brass trays from the turn-of-the-century.  Though each is crafted of hand-hammered brass, each is quite different, indeed. Over the next few days, I’ll share three of these trays with you.  Perhaps one would make the perfect Mother's Day gift!

Shown above, the work of an accomplished metalsmith.  Intertwined shamrocks, thistles, and Tudor roses—representing Ireland, Scotland, and England—bloom along the oval track of this brass English Arts & Crafts tray.  Please come into the shop to appreciate it in-person or click on the photo above to learn more about it.

Another tray tomorrow.
