A refined serving tray designed and produced by Mathieu Matégot in 1953. The French artist of Hungarian origin is renown for his graceful, sometimes remotely decorative designs of practical furniture and utilities for both house and garden. The use of perforated sheet metal is a key element in his work — often rounded into a shapely form as if it were couture instead of metal.

With this serving tray, the hemming of the rim expresses how effortlessly elegant even the most serenely straightforward designs by Matégot can be. The soft yellow lacquer, typical for its time, is original and in exceptional condition considering its age.

Matégot has a special reputation in the Netherlands, as a number of his designs were produced by the Dutch manufacturer Artimeta. This serving tray, however, was created in Matégot’s own atelier in France.
