i verj'body remembera one or two of these,
trays as a family posi sion, looked upon
with more or los doubtful admiration by
the older members of the family, whoj
vibrated bctVsccu ihe point of view ot j
tiwir own earlier time, when such a tray.j
was considered on admirable piece of
houaehold furniture, ami that of tin
younger members of the family, who re-t
garded i; with illy suppressed scorn, if:
not with open ridicule.
Now these trays ore considered the;
most attractive addition possible to ani

on tin dining ro.un mantel shelf overj

It is now quite unusual to find these,
trays in Ihe antique shops, although in

surrounding farm districts for his wares,

Hut whether used with the black back

Mo-.t of the pices have Ibe black
grounds, but some are made with dark

grounds are attractive for the.quaint dec

undoubtedly the black.
The lray8, jardinieres and book ends
xx In. 'i are u-ed for decorating are of (he
ordinary tinware and in the shapes to be
found in any -tore where housewares are
sold. The trays are usually oval and
quite large, although the rectangular
trays, especially those with irregular bor

made of two sizes of deep tin bowls, oval

The dull paint is used instead of the
bright finish because after (be tray has
been varnlsneu, which is doue after all
the decoration has been put on. the tin
Micd product is quite bright enough and
resembles the old trays more than the
bright glittering hnish of new high polish
On the book ends it is of course, neces

with the sh:iio of the ends Some "f the
