This lovely kiln-fired porcelain tray features a detailed watercolor painting of the East River Suspension Bridge, now known as the Brooklyn Bridge. Drawn in the panoramic style popular at the time, the image gracefully captures the zeitgeist of the bustling Brooklyn and New York City of yesteryear. Sailboats, steam ferries, trolleys and horse drawn carriages abound as the motorcar was yet to reach mass production levels.

We've used the original artwork footer as the backstamp, which reads: "The Great East River Suspension Bridge. Connecting the Cities of New York & Brooklyn. Showing Also the Splendid Panorama of the Bay and the Port of New York. Construction Commenced January, 1870....Completed May, 1873....Estimated Cost $15,000,000."

The tray measures 11.5", the perfect size for a bedside "end of the day" tray or a key/wallet tray for the entrance of your home. It also a great size for displaying colognes or other bathroom amenities.

A nice conversation piece for architect, engineering, bridge or history aficionado and a great unique gift for a man.

Any questions? Please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks for looking!
