Vintage Romanian Wooden Kneading Tray Fruit Bowl Bathroom Tray
Handmade vintage Romanian kneading tray restored.
Size: W56cm x D23cm x H12cm approx.
I found this kneading tray in a market in need of a good clean and some restoration.
I first hand sanded it to clean it and to give it a smoother finish.
On one side of the tray there is a small crack. The crack doesn't affect the strength of the tray but I decided to reinforce it anyway to avoid any further damage. To do so it I used a metal strip from a rusted vintage metal ring from an old barrel, which I fixed in the outside with rusted nails overlapping the crack.
Once I repaired the tray I gave it 2 coats of bees wax to protect it.
This tray is at least 100 years old and it's handmade. It is a very rare piece and I think it would be perfect as a fruit bowl or bathroom tray.
