We love displaying these pretty hand-painted Tole Trays in the shop.  

Large Tole Tray




Tole is a French term -  Tole peinte du lac, which means painted tin.  John Hanbury of Wales began producing tin trays and as the demand grew where ship to Europe and America.

Different floral styles for different parts of the particular countries.. 


Pennsylvania has a very Dutch Art style with lots of tulips.  In the early days, most tinware was painted with a red background with yellow and green for accents.


Collectible or not .. we love these pretty hand-painted vintage Tole Trays as they make perfect display pieces all with a story to tell I'm sure!
