A beautiful, large, and heavy silver-plate tray by Gorham in the Newport pattern. It is just beautiful and as the name suggests, fit for elegant serving and entertaining or to display your silver service or barware. All the quality one expects from Gorham, one of America's oldest and finest silver companies.
This tray has baroque or rococo scrolling around the rim, double handles, and a lovely chased pattern on the interior. There is a center cartouche as well, and it is not monogrammed. The tray measures 25" handle to handle x 15 1/4". It is marked faintly on the reverse with the large G, followed by Newport, then Silverplate, then the numbers YB505. The tray is in beautiful condition with no loss to the silver and no surface wear. I do see 3 tiny specks near one corner, but you have to look for them.
The tray weighs just under 6 1/2 lbs before packing, and shipping will be via FedEx Ground/Home Delivery, insurance included.
