Tray Made from Printing Plate, Gift to Henry Ford, 1914

Summary

Over the years, Henry Ford received hundreds of gifts from people who felt a connection with the automotive entrepreneur. For many, he was "one of them," someone who also just happened to become a great industrialist. Perhaps Mr. Ford would have been especially pleased with this creation; a tray made from a repurposed copper printing plate.
