Set of two small, antique English rectangular, rounded corner papier-mâché trays in the Japanese or Chinese taste. One shows a scene with a seated fisherman and a standing lady with a fan on the bank of a river. A large group of fish, octopus and lobster swim towards the figures. The second tray is decorated with a moonlight scene of a lady seated on the bank of a lake holding a mandolin while shielding her face with a hat.
