Featuring a splendid iris in bloom and an ornate three-quarter border, this glass tray presents a lovely French label for Pave Sigaut. This company made candied fruit – fruits glaces – around the turn of the 20th century. An Art Nouveau gem, this tray is sure to brighten any room.
In 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.

DetailsThis tray measures approximately 4 x 6 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 treat our trays as you would any fine china or glass. Do not submerge in water. Always wash by hand. For decorative purposes only.
