American Country Tin Painting - JP3272 Bundle

  • Regular price $50.00

The cut corner tray has been one of Jo Sonja's favorite pieces for decades.  Originally made from steel and tin but now we have had this tray beautifully reproduced in alder and baltic birch.  All of the moldings are solid alder and the floor of the tray is birch ply.  You can see in the photos that it is expertly mitered and constructed.  The tray is wonderfully lightweight at just 10 ounces and yet is a full 17" long by 11" wide.  The exact dimensions of the original tin.

This is a traditional study of country tin painting techniques from the Oliver Buckley Tinshop (1807-1855), Steven Plains, Maine as taught by Dorothy Hutchings in the early 1970's in Portland, Oregon.
