I found this nice tray, then when googling for infos, I discover on CW a fantastic article with same tray:
This large 63x42.5 cm tray was in fairly good condition except lacking of two large pieces of mother of pearl.
So, I decided to try a repair with white air hardening modeling clay.
When hard, a patina was to do...
Best was obtain with make-up!!! Pearly eye shadow on nearly dry nail top coat, incised with old scalpel, blakened with eye liner.
Then a throughout brown shoe polish and that's done.
Very proud of my work and glad to be a girl for having these make-up material lol!
Now I'm searching some other inlaid items to restore, and my hubbie is worry about the invasion ;-))
