Vintage Eye Test Chart

$100.00Price

George Mayerle eye test chartprinted in San Francisco by Schmidt Litho Co., c1907.

 

This 8x10" underglass table tray features a compelling, colorful reproduction of  Mayerle's eye test chart ... ”it combined four subjective tests done during an eye examination. Running through the middle of the chart, the seven vertical panels test for acuity of vision with characters in the Roman alphabet (for English, German, and other European readers)."

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 8x10 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.
