We were delighted to find this Gold Square Lion Paw Footed Tray. (We also carry this in round.) The tray has a wee lip which is perfect as a pen rest and keeps your ink bottle or brush wash in its place. It can also be used to hold pen nibs for calligraphy. This little tray works perfectly for the square J. Herbin 1670 Ink bottles. (See our Ink section.)
This graceful tray is made of pewter covered with gold-leaf. We loved the old-world look of this piece which evokes a piece of 18th Century Lion Paw Footed English furniture.
When drawing with pen & ink or creating calligraphy or painting with watercolors, we've discovered that it's beneficial to have your ink or brush wash raised off of your surface. This way, an accidental splatter won't land on your work surface, ruining the project.
Here at Arcane Objects, we have a philosophy that you should surround your creative space with things that make you smile. After all, happy artists/crafters make better art. This elegant lion paw footed tray is one of many "Arcane Objects" we've sourced for our Studio Supplies section of our shop. We hope it will bring a smile to your face and joy to your calligraphy, drawing or painting.
This footed tray can also be used as a votive candle holder, or as a place to put your spare change, keys or jewelry.
You'll receive only the Lion Paw Footed Tray in the photos. The ink bottles, pens, and other props can be purchased elsewhere in our shop.
The tray measures 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" x 1 1/4". The inside of the square is 3 3/4".
