A jockey, in racing costume, and horse, running a steeplechase. Probably early to mid 20th century. The construction of the brass tray is relatively simple, simple in that its sides are bent up and folded at the corners. The image itself is created by the punching technique. Obviously this is not a tray for carrying drinks as the low relief of the composition does not provide for balancing a cup.
The tray is in good condition overall, with some spots of oxidation. And it measures 16″ by 20 1/2″.
