Victorian Black Papier Mache Tray Table


Roses are red, violets are blue…The Victorians loved floral patterns and they also loved to experiment with new materials – one of their favourites was papier mache. They even produced a wide range of furniture such as chairs and tables, bookcases, wardrobes and beds out of papier mache!

This marvellous piece is an elegant antique black lacquer papier mache tilt top tray table with floral decoration and gilding. A beautiful example of the Victorian decorative arts, this table dates from circa 1850, on later legs.
