After EAPC, Anchor Hocking's next big seller was the Wexford pattern. Production of the sparkling pattern of "quilted diamonds" began in the late 1960's. This tray was often sold like this, paired with this silver plate serving spoon and marketed as a Crystal Cranberry Set in the 60's. The versatile tray is also used as the under plate for the creamer and sugar set, or the cruet set. Measuring 5" x 9 3/4" the tray is also perfect as a pickle dish, for celery, or for serving cheese and crackers.
Both the tray and the serving utensil are in Excellent Condition. The silver plate finish of the server is so shiny that it shows reflections in the photographs. It has a floral cut out pattern in the bowl and states "Silverplated in Italy" and marked "Leonard" for Leonard Silver Manufacturer (a Towle Company.) The server is 8 1/2" long and the flat "bowl" portion is 2 1/2".
