This type of acrylic work, generally embedded with shells or dried flowers, was popular for small housewares in the 1960s and ‘70s. This technique was very often used for souvenirs from various tourist locations. You see a lot of trivets and smaller pieces, but large examples like this rotating lazy susan are much more difficult to find. The black background nicely sets off the large pieces of iridescent abalone shell. Reminds me of Tony Duquette!

Measures 14 inches diameter, about 1 ⅜ inches high. Unmarked, possibly by Hyler Enterprises.

Overall condition is good, with some light scratches on the top surface. There are two very shallow areas, each about the size of a dime, that appear to be popped bubbles in the resin? Spins easily on the undercarriage.
