    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 :-)
