This is a very nice antique American painted tin tray. Common in the early 1800's and often decorated by young woman. The art was described as flowering or painting tin. The tray is earlier than a lot of the decorated ones you see because it is seamed. In other words it was made before tin was rolled into large sheets and thus had to be seamed to make a large tray. This one is 18" by 12 1/2". A lot of the decoration has worn off but what is there is stable. These look wonderful in early cupboards or as backdrops leaning against a wall.
