This decorative small pair of silver plate trays will display excellently in any setting. Each of the trays features an East India Company 1835 Rupee to the centre depicting William IV. A quality pair, an interesting conversation piece for your home or business.

The East India Company also known as the Honourable East India Company was an English and later British joint-stock company. It was formed to trade in the Indian Ocean region, initially with Mughal India and the East Indies and later with Qing China.
At the height of its rule in India, the British East India company had a private army of about 260,000—twice the size of the British Army, with Indian revenues of £13,464,561. The company eventually came to rule vast areas of India with its private armies, exercising military power and assuming administrative functions. Company rule in India effectively began in 1757 and lasted until 1858, when, following the Indian Rebellion of 1857, the Government of India Act 1858 led to the British Crown's assuming direct control of the Indian subcontinent in the form of the new British Raj.
