International Silver Co. sterling silver sandwich plate or tray made in the Northern Lights pattern. This sandwich plate is approximately 10 inches in diameter and 12 1/2 inches over the handles/ears.
This tray is not monogrammed nor does it have any other engravings. This sandwich plate is in excellent vintage condition with only very minor surface scratches that is wear consistent with its age.
The sandwich plate is marked "INTERNATIONAL STERLING H78A" and "Patent Pending". In the book written by Jewel Stern, MODERNISM IN AMERICAN SILVER, Stern illustrates on page 34, a Northern Lights sandwich plate from an original International Silver Co. 1928 catalog page.
Production of Northern Lights pieces was very low, probably less than one hundred sandwich plates were made. I also have a Northern Lights compote listed on Rubylane right now as well.
