Some butterflies... Again!
The tray is a little one, beeing 30 cm by 18 cm. XIXTH century.
This mother of pearl inlay work was done in Tonkin, a province of French Indochine, in Nam Dinh.
The work is incredible, and the glitter is so sweet :-)
No missing mother of pearl pieces, I only filled the gaps within the frame, where age and dryness shrinked the plate.
A little shoe polish gave it back its shine :-)
