Additional Product Information
Arts & Crafts & Art Nouveau in Scotland:
The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) was the centre of the Arts and Crafts movement in Scotland which spaned a period of about 20 years from 1880-1900. The Arts and Crafts movement in England had started earlier and attributed to William Morris. In 1884 Francis Newberry who had moved from London and who was a great admirer of Morris became head of the GSA (Glasgow School of Arts) and along with its illustrious pupil Rennie MacIntosh developed what became known as the Glasgow style focusing on a range of crafts including pottery, embroidery, metalwork, stained glass and woodcarving.
There are 4 round feet at the of the tray - one has been lost and then replaced with a non brass piece.
There is a good patination to the piece but as with age and brass there are some minor scratches and tarnish in places. But these do not detract from the overall quality of the piece.
