Tristan is a beautiful Victorian paper mache pen tray.
He is a long thing shape with a scalloped edge design
He is finished in traditional black lacquer, with pretty hand painted pink central rose, with small floral design gilded swags, swirls and leaves, along with detailed handwork of mother of pearl. All beautifully decorated inside the bowl and around the tray edge
Tristan has some mild wear to the lacquer and decorated surface but overall all is a brilliant and bright piece of artwork
He has a tiny nibble on his edge which an only be seen on his underside, otherwise Tristan is in good condition.
