Couroc Resin Tray with Sailing Ships and Compass,

1970s

(Ref ny9267/nlx)

 

The black resin rectangular tray is decorated with two sailing yachts with crystal stars to bow and stern.  To the left is an ivory colored compass and to the top right a bronze sextant.  The reverse with a slightly raised circular foot to each corner.  Each piece of the design is created with impressing the tray with natural materials like wood brass crystal and bone.  Slightly raised on four molded circular feet.

 

Guthrie Courvoisier and his wife, Moira Wallace, established the Couroc Company in Monterrey, California in the late 1940s. The company worked with a stable of artists to produce inlaid domestic wares/household objects using a proprietary resin material through the 1980s.  Items like these trays were original designs hand inlaid with stones, shells, coral, woods, metal, and sometimes found objects. The resin base was extremely durable and resistant to fading, liquid and heat.
