"To your health, civilization!" (1916) by Dutch cartoonist Louis Raemaekers (1869–1956). Raemaekers was a Dutch painter and editorial cartoonist for the Amsterdam newspaper "De Telegraaf" during World War I, noted for his anti-German stance. This cartoon also appeared in a later poster series under the title "A Toast to Kultur".

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.
