Here is a rare, fine quality handmade large size Arts and Crafts Movement repoussé work copper tray. Repoussé is a technique which involves hammering metal from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. The design of this tray has elements of the Glasgow School through the stylised roses but the label on the reverse tells us that it was made in Truro, Cornwall. It dates from 1912 as it is labelled with the name of the designer maker (Freeman Mclean) and the date on the reverse. The remains of the label could be that of the National Competition in art and design which was managed by the South Kensington School of Art in London.

Students from art and design schools from across the country entered their work into the competition each year and the label tells us that this tray won a Bronze Medal in the Repoussé category. As some of the label has worn away it is hard to tell for sure, it could also be a prize winning label from a more local art and design competition. Either way this is a lovely, quality piece of Arts and Crafts Movement metalware. The tray is a substantial size, measuring 23.5" inches long by 13.5" inches wide at the corners and the condition is very good with a lovely mellow patina to the surface of the copper. Please see all the photos and zoom in for details.
