Newton School copper tray
A large copper tray with repousse tudor roses pattern made by the Newton School of Metal Workers from a design attributed to John Williams, circa 1900.
This particular design appears in the Newton School design archive . The hand drawn design is unsigned but from the style it can safely be attributed to John Williams.
The large tray is a beautiful example of the School’s work and is in near perfect condition with crisp repousse details. The design includes three tudor roses amongst a tree with broad leaves and is very typical of the work of John Williams. The tray has a simple raised edge with punched decoration which is commonly used by the School in their designs.
One of my personal favourites by the School.
