SORRY ITEM SOLD

This exceptional and rare antique Victorian cast sterling silver trinket tray has been modelled in the form of a crescent moon face.


The surface of this antique tray is embellished with details reproducing the iconic moon face*.


This exceptional tray was crafted by the renowned London silversmith Joseph Braham.


NOTE: * Throughout history people have interpreted the moon's surface and patterns as faces, creating a broad pareidolia. This is a largely cultural and imaginative practice, rather than bearing scientific or astronomical significance.
