An Anglo Indian Tray made of padouk heavily inlaid with gilt brass.

The tray has raised sides with brass corners, a brass moulded top edge and shaped, cut out handles to the sides. The inlay covers most of the tray and is in a symmetrical design using floral motifs. There is a circular design to the centre which is given space to stand out by the areas to either side left plain. The underside of the tray has a wide base to raise the centre off the ground and is marked in pencil, what appears to be 'Col. Hutchinson, W 32'.

It is impossible to determine the owner from the information but we have found two Lieutenant Colonel Hutchinsons in Indian at 1900. Henry Doveton Hutchinson of the 77th Foot was the Director of Military Education in India. The other is James Bird Hutchinson of the 82nd Foot. This is a very decorative tray for its brass inlay and the wood having a rich colour. Circa 1900.
