butterfly trays

I had no idea that butterfly trays are a thing. Now that I have one, they are popping up all over the place.
(The way things sometimes do). If I understand properly, they were mostly made in Rio in the 1920s through 
1940's, and usually have a mahogany inlaid tray frame. I guess mine is a bit of a weirdo, with it's chrome frame 
and all. Maybe it broke at some point and was re-made during it's tenure up in Maine.

Much like with the colorphilia post below, I recommend clicking on the picture to really
see them. Amazing wing mandalas. I practically dream about them.
