  • Details:  These tin trays by Guildcraft for Sunshine Biscuits are so delightful!   There were quite a few of these made with different works from many artists.  These two are based on lithographs from Currier & Ives from the 1800’s to 1907.  Each tray depicts a different scene from America of old.  One tray image, ” The Village Blacksmith”, was originally done in 1864.  It’s a beautiful country scene with a blacksmith working while children walking home from school stop to watch him work.  The other tray image, “The Mill Dam at Sleepy Hollow”, was done circa 1850, it shows The Stone House and Gristmill in Tarrytown New York.  Beautiful movement of water, willow trees and a man fishing from a wooden bridge.  Both have information on the back regarding the image and information on the maker of these trays, Guildcraft.  The trays are bordered in a rich brown and gold rim.  This is a beautiful set of of Old Americana trays, not only for serving, but would make a lovely wall decor.  A great gift for an Americana collector.  Great addition to a farmhouse or country decor!  We have several other Currier and Ives items, please search our site if interested.

Currier and Ives was started by Nathaniel Currier in 1835.  It was a successful American printmaking firm in New York City that produced prints from paintings by fine artists as black and white lithographs and later colored by hand, usually by German immigrants.  In 1857 Nathaniel partnered with James Merritt Ives and the company became Currier & Ives.  Currier and Ives was the most successful company of lithographers in the U.S.   Their works included lithographs of American life with different themes like:  hunting, fishing, city life, rural scenes, historical scenes, ships, railroads, winter scenes, still-lifes and so much more.  Currier died in 1888 and Ives was active in the firm until his death in 1895. Both Currier’s and Ives’s sons followed their fathers in the business, until they closed in 1907.  Today, original Currier and Ives prints are much sought by collectors, and modern reproductions of them are popular decorations.
