Vintage French Pâte de Fruit Decorative Tray
Once upon a time, these charming trays were used to display pâte de fruit, the brightly hued chewy treat that French confiseurs display so proudly, like gems in their store window. Today these tin trays are retired from their confectionery days, but have endless decorative potential. Use them on your coffee table underneath these smokey votive candle holders, to keep succulents together on the window sill, or beneath a vase of freshly-picked flowers.
All items from the Food52 Vintage Shop are final sale. Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.
