DESCRIPTION

Found locally in Lancaster County Pennsylvania an antique wooden apple tray from the late 1800's.  This has a delightful old Primitive decoration of a flowers painted all along the interior sides of the tray.  It's a charming design and while the paint decoration shows wear it's still in very good condition. The tray is from circa 1880 and is made entirely of wood.  The painted decoration is later, probably 1920's or so, you can see the old wear to the wood surface through the paint on the flat inner area and along the sides.

Beautiful HEART shaped HANDLES !

The handles are raised and have carved heart cutouts.  Quite primitive, each heart was carved by hand and is just slightly different from the other.  All hand painted decoration of charming naive flowers and vines on a barn red background.  The hearts and all along the inner edge there is outline decoration in deep gold coloring.  The top edge is painted black.  The center of the tray is dark green. The exterior is the same barn red as on the interior sides, and there is a squiggle line decoration around the back.  The corners are canted, the construction is nailed.

The tray shows plenty of early wear both on the interior and exterior and there is wear to the painted surface, but still in excellent condition.  Some small shrinkage lines to the wood around the heart carvings.  The tray rests flat, no warping, it is good and strong.
