More Transition


English Hand-Hammered Pewter "Transitional" Tray with Nouveau & Deco Elements (LEO Design)

With the sweet smell of Transition still perfuming the air, we share with you this English hand-hammered pewter tray, made in the 1920's or 1930's.  The Gothic elongate-quatrefoil silhouette and the textured peening of the metal places this tray within the English Arts & Crafts sensibility. The handles, however, provide a whisper of Art Deco style—which moves this handsome tray into the "transitional" period between the two Early Twentieth Century movements.
