A vintage, possibly antique, French cast bronze pen tray with acorn and oak leaf detail.
The word BRONZE is impressed in very small letters on the upper part of the tray.
The tray has been lightly cleaned but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning. There is a degree of verdigris to the surface of the tray, and some mottling to the gilding on the underside, both of which we have tried to show in the photographs. The gilding to the upper part has largely worn away over time, with only a little of the gilding visible around the edges. However, this allows the true colour of the bronze to show through (which we personally prefer). Otherwise, the tray is structurally sound and weighs about 465g.
The tray measures just under 10in across at its widest (including the handles) and about 5in at its widest part from top to bottom. The rim stands at about 0.375in high. Exact age unknown but possibly dates from the first half of last century.
