Grammar of Ornament Glass Tray

$45.00Price

This incredible chromolithograph is taken from Owen Jones’s "The Grammar of Ornament." Originally published in 1856, this book is one of the holy grails of art reference books. With his signature style, Jones documents samples of ornamental design from all over the world. We think this 5x8 under-glass tray would complement any room!

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.

  • Details

    This tray measures approximately 5x8 inches. The relative thinness of the tray – just over 1/8” thick – belies the complexity of the potichomania process. Each of our trays is comprised of a glass tray, three layers of 28# paper, four coatings of varnish, and finished with two coats, each of paint and clear acrylic spray. We’ve added a high-quality felt pad on the bottom in order to protect your home surfaces.
    Care: Please spray with a gentle glass cleanser and wipe clean. Do not submerge in water. For decorative purposes only.
