19th-C. B. Walton & Co. Tray - Black Sheep Antiques
19th-century paper-mâché tray hand-painted with three terrier puppies tearing apart a doll toy by B. Walton and Co. Walton and Co. are associated with a series of these so-called Gothic-shaped trays, which were well-painted with allover landscape views, or figures in landscapes. These trays are seldom, if ever, signed by the artist, but are generally impressed "B. Walton and Co." or B. Walton and Co. Warranted. Age wear and crazing.
