Hummingbird

$45.00Price
Featuring a plethora of delicate yet vibrant hummingbirds, this under-glass tray is the newest addition to our new 2015 collection. One can really feel the swooping action of these tiny birds. Hummingbirds can fly right, left, up, down, backwards, and even upside down. I especially adore the superb rendering of the minuscule nest on the left. Perfect all those who appreciate the fabulous Trochilidae. The natural history lithograph has been attributed to Ernst Haeckel and dates to the late nineteenth century.

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 5 x 8 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.
