Early 19th C. CT Tole Bread Tray
Excellent American painted tinware bread tray with a very good crystallized bottom. The repeated red and green motifs on the rim are classic design elements used by the Oliver Filley shop in Bloomfield, CT. And the yellow band enclosing a dark wavy line is a design form first seen in the Connecticut Filley shop. 12 5/8”L. Ca 1805-1825. Ex-Harry Hartman.
