Hammered Aluminum Tray with handles, floral and fruit design. This rectangular tray is 12 inches long and 7 inches wide, with the central live area 8 inches long by 4 inches wide. This is a lovely example of its type, with some unlikely natural history shown: the center shows a pear, a peach (?) and a bunch of cherries growing together cooperatively in the midst of various blooms. Off on the right is a bunch of grapes, on the left a couple of enormous strawberries and an unusual butterfly. The mark reads "Hand Finished Alumium", and they aren't kidding - you can see the hammer marks on the curly handles. One of the handles, that above the mark, is a bit off true, as you can see in the last photo, which also shows the mark . The corners flair out a bit in sheer exuberance, as shown in the photos. These were frequently given as wedding presents from the 1930s to the 1950s.

Flaws: Some oxidation in middle section, particularly in lower left hand corner (see last photo), and the previously mentioned wonky handle.
