Description

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.

    I bought this lovely tray as a birthday gift for a longtime friend. She and I like to exchange fair trade gifts that are responsibly and sustainably made. We also like to get each other splurges that are distinctive and not necessarily practical, everyday items. This item was just what I was looking for. Its beauty and artistry exceeded my expectations, and my friend loves it and has it displayed on her coffee table. This was my first purchase at Ten Thousand Villages -- in fact, I'd never been on the website or in a retail store -- so I took a chance buying this tray. But no worries. The gift arrived well-packed, safe and sound, and right on time. I've now added Ten Thousand Villages as a favorite online destination, especially when I'm looking for a special gift.

    Lovely tray - also very durable and sturdy. I keep it on my coffee table as a working conversation piece. The artwork is simply amazing for the price.
