Wooden tray features folk art style hand-painting on glass inset. In reverse glass painting, the design is silk screened onto the reverse side of the glass. The painting is done back to front: details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. Reverse painting requires great care and skill, as the visual surface is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. Reverse painting dates to the Middle Ages.
