From Google about the manufacturers:

"They made moulds of resin, pressing fabric (or paper) patterns onto the resin and covering that layer with another layer, applying heat and giving a shape.

“A layer of polyester would go down, then the fabric, then the second layer of resin. That would be put into boiling water to soften it and then we cut them into circles with a machine designed to cut out shoes. Then we’d put them back into boiling water and then into a wooden mould. I actually developed a system that would do the flutes as the mould pressed the resins into their final shape. Before that, we did the flutes by hand, just like making pies.”

Fab trays, is what they were called. Canadians had insatiable interest in these, and supply could hardly meet demand.

A dozen employees were pouring resin, pressing patterns, cooling, boxing, shipping, invoicing, bookkeeping, and marketing the product.

At their peak in 1973, Hardy Glenwood was producing 800 to 1000 trays a day, all with little mechanization.

Fab trays, fab coasters, fab wall art (so named because fabric was applied to resin), fab, fab, fab."



Very good vintage condition - some light scratches, one small chip off the edge - overall in great condition for it's age
