SALE Take a look at this beautiful large Ruffled Edge rather Ornate Silverplate Round Tray marked "Wilcox IS International Silver Co. Joanne, 7271." Although I say it is ornate, if it makes sense, it's ornate in a simple kind of way, with typical etching on the inside of the tray itself, but a heavy fluted/ruffled edge that just makes it stand out from the many plain round silver trays we often see.
This comes from the KY Estate of a lady who is about to have her 102nd birthday, and she loved to entertain! She also took very good care of her silver, glassware, china and all the other collectibles found in her immaculate home. This tray, along with all other silver pieces found, were air tight in plastic baggies, so even though there's a little turning of the silver, not nearly what there would be if it had been out all these years she has been gone from her home(probably 3 years, since I remember buying from her when she lived at home and was just beginning to downsize). The tray has been used, and she has her name and a date on the back that you can see, so she probably took it to one of her favorite parties or church functions.
This great platter/tray measures 13" across, and is in excellent vintage condition. It has not been polished because many prefer the natural aged patina, but if you would like for me to lightly polish it before sending, I will do that for you. Just let me know at checkout. This is a heavy tray, weighing just a couple ounces shy of 2 lbs. before any packing material is added.
