Hand-hammered brass, softly gleaming, makes for a handy and handsome drinks tray. It was made in Germany during the Jugendstil movement. The hammered "peening" softens the reflected light and the gallery of "pillows" around the edge will keep your glasses from sliding off. It would also make a useful "kitchen tray" to corral oil bottles and spice jars. It would also be a lovely source of reflected light, presiding over the dining room, hanging from a spot on the wall. Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
More Springtime Suggestions tomorrow and in the days to come.
