Sterling silver sandwich tray/plate made by the Alvin Corporation circa 1930 in an Egyptian inspired Art Deco motif that Alvin sold under the pattern name "GIFT LINE". The round plate is approximately 9 inches in diameter. The tray is marked with the ALVIN name, the word STERLING and the item number . According to Alvin Corp. records, the number 1508 was sold as a sandwich plate. The Gift Line sandwich tray can be found illustrated in the Jewel Stern MODERNISM IN AMERICAN SILVER book on page 87.
This tray/plate is in very good vintage condition show some signs of use consistent with its age. This tray/plate is not monogrammed or otherwise engraved. The production run on this pattern was very limited and records indicate that probably less than 250 of these total were ever made.
I do have other Gift Line pieces listed here and may have one or two that have not been photographed and listed yet. Please feel free to contact me and ask what is available.
