Jennens & Bettridges Papier-Mâché Tray

A mid 19th century Victorian papier-mâché tray by the London maker Jennens & Bettridges.

Jennens and Bettridge were highly regarded for producing quality papier-mâché wares. Their original premises were in Birmingham and they started a London branch at 3 West Halkin Street, Belgravia in 1837.

The tray has a raised and shaped edge and is decorated with painted scenes of exotic birds drinking from a fountain surrounded with flowers.

The tray has a gilt edge and has gilt foliage decorating the edges of the tray surrounding the central scene.

The tray is in good condition with some wear to the gilding and an old repair to a small piece of the tray edge. (Circa 1860)
