Couroc phenolic tray with inlaid decoration of mushrooms

This fabulous tray was made by the American company Couroc. It is made of black phenolic with an inlaid pattern of mushrooms in teak & gilt metal. It has the manufacturer's label on the rear.

Approximate dimensions:
Measurements: 17.95ins x 12.48ins - 45.6cms x 31.7cms

Couroc was established by Guthrie Courvoisier, a gallery owner, in 1948 in Monterey, California and continued until its closure in the early 1990s changing hand several times after Courvoisier’s death in the 1970s.
Courvoisier & his wife put the experience that he had gained whilst working with plastics in the war effort to good use and eventually created a formula of phenolic resin that was durable and alcohol & flame resistant. Initially he employed many skilled artisans who incorporated brass and other metals, seashells coral & seaweed and incorporated them into the designs of the trays. They also used things like screws safety pins & paperclips.

Very good with some slight marks commensurate with age & use
