The interior bottom of the tray features a cast cameo portrait bustin relief - oneof Queen Marie Antoinette, and the otherof King Louis XVI of France. Each character is flanked by an up-turned laurel leaf, and the busts are very finely detailed.The backgrounds on the tray bottoms surrounding theportraitbusts in reliefhave been hand-chased to provide a textured back-drop for the ornamental relief. (*Note: this pair of round trays are the companion pieces to an oval footed tray with handles, also listed by us. The three would make a beautiful suite when displayed or usedtogether.)
