A smallish vintage lobed artisan carved soapstone dish or tray (for cufflinks, rings, coins etc) possibly originally intended for use as an ashtray. The upper part of the dish is carved with foliate detail.
There are a few minor nibbles along the rim but whether this occurred at the time of production or later, it is difficult to say.
The tray measures approximately 4.75in by just over 3.25in at its longest and widest and stands just under 0.5in deep at its highest point on the rim. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first part of last century. Weighs around 126g.
