Vintage 1954 Waverly Products Ray Eames Rectangular 'Sea Things' Serving Tray - White
This is a rare original 1954 Waverly products serving tray in the rarer rectangular shape with the wonderful Sea Things design in black and white by Ray Eames. Excellent condition throughout with little loss of the transfer print, black on white background.
During the 1950's Waverly products had a whole range of plastic and Bakelite products for the home, all with a variety of designs to suit all tastes. It must have been a real coup for them to add the sea things design by Ray Eames to their portfolio at the height of their popularity.
The serving trays featuring the designs of Ray Eames were available in either square or rectangular and in either black and white or blue and gold. The designs were not in production for any long degree and only, therefore, limited numbers were made.
This beautiful version is in used condition. The white and black print version was most susceptible to fading through use but this one is 95% good which makes it as good as can be found. There are a few cracks presented- further images are available upon request.
The Ray Eames serving trays are very rare to find and command a high price. They do however make a fabulous investment as they are highly desirable.
