Unusual Mardi Gras Souvenir, Rex 1913, Embossed & Periced Bronze Metal:
Thisitem isfrom an estate that we have been sorting since Feb.. We bought a ton of stuff and will be listing it as time becomes available..
The item in this sale is shown in the image above. It measures4 1/4" inwidth and is 53/4"s long. The metal looks likebronse and has a wonderful patina, I did not attempt to clean it. This was a souvenir for a Rex Mardi gras Ball that was held in 1913 in New Orleans. The bottom of the small tray has a reposse image of Rex the King of Mardi Gras, the numbers and letters are also repossed or embossed, I've included an image of the bottom of the tray below. The sides of the tray are pierced all the way around, creating a basket weave look, all of these pcs are intact but there is a couple of bends or dents, I beleive these could be rockered out, our hands are not as steady as they use to be so we didn't even try to fix any of the places.
