The tole painting on this walnut lazy Susan is a folk art knockout. A profusion of fruit, vines and foliage in soft colors stand out against the black background. The back is also painted matte black and signed in gilt Vele I. May (third photo, middle right).
This beautiful and useful vintage find is 16 inches wide and 2 inches high. The top is in excellent condition; there are just a few dings on the back. The tray spins easily if it is used as intended instead of just gracing the table as a centerpiece. It would also make an eye-catching shelf-sitter.
