This large, oval pine needle wall tray decorated with myriad varieties of seashells is the finest example we have ever offered for sale. The tray itself, beautifully woven of longleaf pine needles bound with narrow strips of raffia, is finished at the handles with graduated circlets of raffia, an unusual decorative touch. Set under glass on a bed of black felt, the bouquet of seashell flowers is accented with plastic ferns and stems of lily of the valley and surrounded by three seashell butterflies. The whole effect is quite eye-catching and very intricate. The overall design is reminiscent of the Victorian dried flower arrangements under glass. We're dating it from the 1940's, in our best estimation. Read More
