Ferns glass tray

Ferns glass tray

Underlying this tray, courtesy of a charming botanical illustration, is a diverse selection of turn-of-the-century fern specimens. Varying in form, the tray is tied together by the subtle shading of cool greens and earthy browns that seemingly flow through the plants. Please, marvel at how the "Christmas-Fern" looks remarkably like a "Christmas-Tree."

     In the potichomania process, the glass acts as both a foundation and protective finish, saving the step of varnishing. The original intent was to recreate Greek and Etruscan vases by simulating rare and expensive Sevrés porcelain.
