Vintage 1960's Tin Tray - State of Georgia Travel Souvenir - Black and Gold Travel Collectibles
Georgia, a song of you comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines. Ray Charles
No one knows quite how to do cocktail hour quite like people in the South. In Georgia, in particular, it usually involves pretty glasses, rickety rocking chairs, an ancient front porch and a bucketful of stories about how life was, once upon a time. In a state that adores pretty vistas, grand hospitality and interesting characters, chances are, even if you spent just a few hours in Georgia, you have a cocktail story worth hearing. This vintage 1960's travel tray will help you remember that experience forever. Featuring towns big and small, some note-worthy landmarks and a colorful painting of the state flower, the Cherokee Rose, this is a pretty memento of your good time moments exploring the Peach State.
As more and more people began traveling around the country during the mid-20th century, a rise in collectible travel souvenir items became popular. One of those most fun ones were these 1960's tin souvenir trays depicting each and every state in the U.S. Appealing to jet-setters and road-trippers alike, they served as not only a nostalgic keepsake of a wonderful trip enjoyed, but also a useful piece of kitchenware that was both fun and functional. Each tray was rimmed in gold and black and contained an outline of the state depicting popular cities, local attractions and a colorful snippet of local flora or fauna. With such dramatic graphic appeal that offered a cohesive color scheme between each state, they made attractive wall decor when grouped together and provided a fun source of conversation while they served coffee or cocktails.
