oak and bronze



This unusual oak dish with glass lid, featuring a bronze galleon finial (or handle), dates to the 1930s. Its function is unknown: it may be for holding cigarettes, business cards or possibly butter? It is beautifully made and the stylised galleon makes an attractive feature. It does not seem to be labelled and there are no clear indications of where it was made or by whom: the galleon has a small star on the platform below the ship and there may be a signature on the waves but it is impossible to make it out. There are some slight marks and scratches on the wood, and the galleon is screwed firmly into the bevelled glass (there is a dent in the glass where it is attached but this seems to have occurred during the manufacturing). The piece measures 18.5cms by 13.5cms by 9cms and it is quite heavy (601 grams) as the wood is solid. This would make an attractive, period desk accessory or could be added to a 1930s collection. Further images can be supplied upon request. The item has been re-listed due to non-payment.
