I found a fascinating junk shop today (my favorite kind of shopping!)and bought two (more) large, hand painted black tole trays to add to my collection. I adore them, but already have some I can't display because of lack of wall space. I have a 1950s kitchen with two corner shelves for my beloved collection of vintage kitchen ceramics and trays. That's it. I need a bigger house. If we ever get around to remodeling, I'll try to plan kitchen space to hang my beautiful tole trays.
The dining room is another possibility, but I'm not sure.
Do you have hand-painted tole trays, and where do you display them? Any pictures? I would love to see them!
My other acquisition today was a vintage sewing machine table- nice dark oak, elaborate carvings and hardware, will make a beautiful side table. Much prettier than the 1940s cabinet I already have. $20.00, sold! I'd post a picture, but it's in the back of my car and I'm too tired to get it out right now.
