Home Proud: Vintage vanity tray

Whilst doing some eBay browsing I accidentally came across this gorgeous vintage vanity tray. The seller obviously wasn't aware of its true value and sold it to me for just £16! I know...antique bargain!

These were used with the vintage brush and mirror sets back in the day, simply as a display dish on the vanity tables.

The details on the embroidery on this one are stunning, and the metal around it is as well. Quite rare to find such a lovely tray so I had to have it. There are lots on eBay all the time and for various prices, sizes and designs so do check it out if you like this one! Search terms 'vintage vanity tray' or 'vintage vanity tray lace'.

I used it as a display for all my perfumes, what do you think?

  1. Charm bracelets are fantastic vintage pieces, because every charm tells a story that was relevant to someone at one time and gives little clues as to what that story might be. I bought a stunning vintage bracelet from Vintage Tom and get so many complements. It's by far the best vintage jewellery shop I've found to date. vintage jewellery
