Good vintage condition. The tray for sure has come a long way. It is well loved and shows signs of use. We have a feeling that the original tray could have been charcoal to black in colour but the previous owner has painted it gold. (It's just my guessing as some owners do prefer having their heirloom brass or pewter dresser trays in gold, which may not have been available in the past.) Regardless, the gold colour looks delightfully and tastefully done, making this treasure more stunning than ever. The antique lace shows a beautiful pinkish discoloration throughout. Some chips on the two glasses encasing the antique lace (mostly around the edges but you will only find them if you take them out from the tray, which I did for inspection and cleaning purposes.) No cracks or scratches on glass surface spotted. No breakages of lace found either.
Care of antique items
We would definitely not recommend using any cleaning products unless you have professional knowledge in this area. Wiping the glass surface with a soft towel will just do fine. Do not place this antique vanity tray in bathrooms as the humidity will corrupt more with the brass ring.
