Tattooed Lady glass tray
With a look of defiance, this proud woman of 1907 shows off her extensive collection of classic American tattoo art. From the neck up, she's the picture of conformity with tasteful pearls and a coquettish flower; but, from the neck down, it's a rebellious jungle of snakes, birds, horses, and lions. Would she be alive today, her inevitable neck tattoos would ruin the whole thing. Take note, kids.
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.

DetailsThis tray measures approximately 4x6 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. Always wash by hand. For decorative purposes only.
