Vintage Floral Tole Tray

Vintage Floral Tole Tray


Coming to us from a collector's estate in the North Shore, we are pleased to present this darling Vintage Hand-Painted Tole Tray.

A familiar collectible to antique and vintage curators and beloved for their sweet floral detail, the word tole comes to us from the French term tole peinte du lac, or painted tin.

Tole, as we know it, was started in Pontypool, Wales by John Hanbury in the early to mid 1700s. Demanded throughout Europe and eventually by American colonies, the founding fathers of the American trade were brothers Edward and William Patterson. Settling in Connecticut after immigrating from Ireland in 1740, each piece of tole was shaped and decorated entirely by hand, each one more unique than the next.

Case in point, this lovely Vintage Floral Tole Tray.  American for sure, we adore the soft, lush aesthetic of this special tray. Entirely hand-painted with pretty florals of roses, hydgrandeas and petite, blushing pink buds, this pretty find is brushed with bits of golden detail and features two convenient side handles for entertaining with fashionable ease.

Back-stamped Hand Decorated Tole by Pilgrim Art No. 148, this charming tray in the softest sage green hue promises to become a perfect addition to your collection.

Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 18" x 13 3/8".
