Reverse painted glass tray. Item 3917.
This large reverse painted glass is decorated with a scene of birds, flowers and a butterfly. The glass has been etched and engraved on the back, then painted and gilded and mounted in a stained pine frame. This gives you a clean surface and ensures that the decoration cannot be damaged with usage. The brass handles are replacements. The initials in the bottom right are DGI. It is 625mm long, including the handles, and 460mm wide. It is in very good condition and dates from around 1880.
