This is a very vintage butterfly under glass wood tray. Butterfly wings make up the whole collage and some are irredescent and gorgeous. I see 2 wing portions in the top left corner that have suffered some age. The wood tray, I believe is a light mahogany with a nice stripe inlay and is practically flawless. It was taken care of and for its age, I would say MINT condition. The backside is in just as good condition; does have a scratch or two but who is going to look at the back? The glass appears to be flawless.

The stamp on the back side is in Portuguese and the top portion translates to: Manufactures Artifacts of Wood; Founded in 1946. The remainer is the company name, address, inspection #'s and the # of this piece, 280.

It measures 16 3/4" L x 9 1/4" H x 3/4" D and weighs 2 lbs 4 oz.

I don't think this piece was ever used as a tray and kept out of the light as the colors are still pretty briliant. This is a beautiful piece and very well made.
