Gold Leaf Horse Tray

Bring the cherished traditional of Tennessee Walking Horses to your home. A gold leaf horse tray from Walking Papers Studio’s Stable Trays collection combines art and sophistication for a unique and elegant piece that will get all your guests talking.

Our Unique Process

What makes a gold leaf horse tray from our collection special? Each tray is carefully handcrafted and features original artwork inspired by the horses on artist Xima Lee’s family farm in Franklin, TN. You can read about the inspiration behind each and every piece, giving your tray a special story to share with friends, family, and guests.

 We start by applying imitation gold leaf to the underside of the glass sheet. Each plate features an individual patina finish to bring out the unexpected beauty unique to your piece. Every piece in our Stable Trays collection is made to order and never mass-produced. For the finishing touch, we add a soft fabric backing with a gold accent trim for a result that is both stately and stylish.

Each tray is signed by the artist and shaped according to the image selected. A gold leaf horse tray can be the perfect gift for an equestrian lover in your life, or for decorating your own home. This versatile gift can be displayed on a desk, wall, shelf, or table.

The Inspiration

Xima Lee’s work is inspired by the animal friends from Harlinsdale Farms in Franklin, TN. Harlinsdale Farms has a long history with horses dating back to its founding in the 1930’s. In the mid-1940’s, resident colt Midnight Sun twice earned the title of National Champion in the Shelbyville national celebration. Today, the farm continues to be home to several horses. From the gentle and kind nature of “Harlin” to the generous spirit of “Edwina”, you will love sharing the special stories of these amazing animals by bringing this artful collection to your home.
