Vintage Couroc of California Blue Bird Round Tray or Plate. Vintage Couroc of California pieces were the wedding and shower present of choice from 1950's to the 1980's. Couroc was located in Monterey, California and produced many different types and shapes of trays, boxes, ashtrays and glass barware.

The company was founded by Guthrie Courvoisier, owner of Courvoisier Galleries in San Francisco in 1948, Courvoisier worked for Disney prior to founding his company. While working for Disney he designed the first commercially available animation cels, these cels are still known as "Courvoisier Cels". His wife, Moira Wallace was a designer and was involved in the designing and manufacturing of the Couroc designs, on rare occasions she personally signed her work.

Courac employed many skilled artisans during the early years, the artists carefully arranged bits and pieces of common metal items such as springs, screws, glitter, safety pins and paper clips, shells, corral, woods and coins into a special material called black satin black phenolic. This material is resistant to alcohol and boiling water, but is not dishwasher safe. Couroc's founder died in the 1970's and the company was sold several times before ceasing production in 1990.

The pattern on this tray features a blue bird with a red breast seated on branch with red leaves, this pattern is not a commonly found one.

It is 10 1/2" across, can be used as a tray or a plate, is in excellent gently used condition, some very minor signs of use, common in these pieces. It has the original gold label on the back and would be an excellent addition to your collection or decor!
