Hand painted tole tray with bronze accents. The central motif depicts a red-robed Chinese man in a garden setting with an exotic bird perched on his left hand and a pipe in his right hand. He is surrounded by assorted trees and shrubs with a few architectural elements visible in the distance. This vignette is enclosed by a single fillet while a more intricate decoration of interlocking vines runs fills the external border of the tray. Wear commensurate with age and use with some of the more external areas appearing slightly abraded.
