A Copper Beauty

English Hand-Hammered and Pierced Copper Plate (LEO Design)

During these chilly Winter days, we are featuring a selection of trays now in-stock at LEO Design. We look-forward to the time (the sooner, the better) when we can use these trays to serve family, friends and other loved ones.

This sweet (though small) little plate would bring a lovely touch of Arts & Crafts sophistication to that tiny spot in your home which has been wanting for a small point of punctuation.  It was made in England around 1905.  The hammering is beautifully executed, the design is crisp, and the deep, brown patination is rich and lovely. Especially unique is the trio of piercings which encircle the plate.  A stylized, six-petal flower radiates from the center.

Please click on the photo above to learn more about this tray.

More selections from our expansive tray collection tomorrow and in the days to come.
