The Fairest of Them All?


English Arts & Crafts Brass Tray with Exquisite Hand-Tooled Scrolling (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.

After 26 years of collecting and selling English trays, this one may be the nicest I've ever owned. And, although it could be used to serve food, it would be much better suited to hanging upon the wall as a work of art. In fact, it could serve as an architectural feature!  Four whorls of scrolling botanicals luxuriate in each corner of the tray which is surrounded by a crimped-edge gallery. And the soft, warm reflection of light off the brass surface will gently brighten any spot in your home.  (Why am I selling this?)

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.
