The Eagle is surveying his land, which includes a mountain in the far distance; tree blossom just below his branch & also hanging above his head; six birds flying across the sea, on which there are two common sail boats. Around the rim, the Koi are swimming through the midst of water fronds & water lilies. The Eagle which has been hand beaten & then finely carved in relief, is obviously the prominent feature, but he also highlights the lighter shades of copper which surround him. THIS TRAY REALLY IS A MARVELLOUS ITEM, MADE IN AN AGE WHEN ATTENTION TO DETAIL & HIGH QUALITY WORK WAS THE RULE.
Please do look at all the photos... This tray is an amazing part of the history of decorative metal work. The measurements are: 7" x 5".
