Brass tray, a souvenir of Paris, France. Tray has four ornate legs with ball feet, and an oval central medallion with eight round medallions around the outer edge. Each medallion has an illustration of a Parisian building, including the Pantheon, the Arc de Triomphe, the Luxor Obelisk, and the Cathedral of Notre Dame. The absence of the Eiffel Tower suggests that this tray pre-dates the Tower's construction in 1889.
