Oddities & Delights Table Trays

Decoupage under glass is a variation of the Potichomania process

Potiche(referring to mania). meaning oriental vase and manie

This art form was practiced in mid-19th century England and refers 

to the craze of decorating clear glass vases with cut-out prints. The 

process of coating the inside of glass vessels with engravings or paintings

gives them the appearance of painted ware. The relative thinness of the tray —
just over 1/8” thick
— belies the complexity of the potichomania process. In this style,
the glass acts as both a
foundation and protective finish. Each under-glass tray is comprised of a glass tray, layers of paper, adhesive and paint, and finished with four layers of clear acrylic spray. We’ve added a high-quality felt pad on the bottom to protect your
home surfaces.
