Just the most fabulous old tray we ever had, pierced ornate metalwork, Eastern designs all over, with handles. As to the metal, we have been unable to ascertain exactly what is under the finish. It was sold to us as solid copper, which it is not, and may have been re-plated but much in the past. It is not magnetic. It is not silver under the copper, and our gold expert did not know what metal it was when he tested it. So, suffice it to say it is just a fabulous old ornate metalwork tray, unusual and wonderful. It measures 30" across and 22" wide and is in very good condition structurally. There are some areas here and there which are darkened, or actually a slightly different color, possibly where old tarnish was polished off, just not sure. It is heavy, very heavy for the size. Quality of workmanship on this tray is just the best ever. Worthy of being re-plated if you are tremendously picky, we loved it the way it is. Shipping will be via the UPS store with professional packing and tracking.
