Handmade and Handcrafted Peacock Arabesque Decorative Wooden Coffee Table or Ottoman Tray. Inspired By The Ceramic Art Of William De Morgan.


William De Morgan was a famous British and Victorian era mathematician who lived at the end of the 19th century. During his lifetime, he found a passion for the arts and became a highly skilled artist and mastered ceramics. He was particularly drawn to Middle-eastern and Islamic lustreware, drawing upon Hispano-moresque and Italian Maiolica styles in his work. He was also a famed for his artistic reproductions of peacocks. The woodburned tray here is a reinterpretation of one of William De Morgan's tile lustreware featuring a rich Persianate and European floral arabesque and peacock design as envisioned by William. It is one of the most gorgeous pieces we have made and it will make a perfect holiday gift, or decorative addition to your home or office. It is one-of-a-kind so if you love it, do not let it go. Technique: pyrography; Material: Basswood; Finish: Specialty patina paint and metallic gold accents; glaze (side bark); Polyurethane; Handles: Vintage Brass.Note: The picture featured in the listing here is a previously sold version of this tray. We will attempt to replicate the original as closely as we can, but there are subtle differences in the wood shape and our execution of the design. We guarantee that each product we remake is done with extensive care and attention to create the best and most beautiful product possible. We also wanted to let you know that we try and use repurposed vintage handles to add an additional historic beauty to our product and be environmentally conscious through recycling material. The variety of our handles are always changing so there might be a difference with the handles in your order, but again, we guarantee we will always put something that matches and is extraordinarily unique and beautiful. Please let us know if you'd like to see the chosen handles before we send it out to you.
