Here's a beautifully made early theater commemorative tray made by the Gorham Company for the 370th performance of Hazel Kirke at the Madison Square Theatre in 1881. The Madison Square Theatre was a Broadway theatre on 24th Street between 6th Avenue and Broadway. It was built in 1863 and demolished in 1908. Hazel Kirk was a play in 4 acts written by Steele MacKaye. The play centers around a love affair between a young English nobleman and the daughter of an American miller.
The tray is copper and has wonderful design, craftsmanship, and detailing. It is signed "Gorham Co. Union Square, N.Y." on the back. This is an unusual and early New York theatre collectible.
