Butterfly Wing Tray
One thing I bought at the flea market over Christmas is a really pretty vintage tray with a design made out of butterfly wings pressed under glass. It’s so pretty, and I have it on my bar cart. These trays were made in Brazil from the 40′s to the 60′s, and feature inlayed teak, and gorgeous butterfly wings. Mine happens to have a fair bit of wear to the wings, but it’s still beautiful. I couldn’t take a picture of it today other than on my iphone, so I’ll have to take one later. For now, here are a few butterfly wing trays that are available on ebay and etsy. They’re a really cool and different way of showcasing butterflies other than having them pinned and in a frame….and I don’t feel as bad because they’re vintage!
What do you think? Do you like this kind of thing? Or does it freak you out a little?
