This beautiful superbly crafted large serving tray for a large coffee tea service is Rococo Revival/ George III in style with deep embossed rim and handles. The serving tray is Sheffield plate (rolled copper between silver layers)l It has the correct copper ridges at the rim for fine Sheffield plate. Several area have the lovely copper tint showing through the silver in a few placed from much polishing.

The tray sits on scroll legs height of 3", measures 27" from handle to handle, 18" wide. We have provided one picture of the serving tray with the large coffee tea set that has sat on it for a hundred years. The coat of arms banner reads "die donum" which means in old English "The Gift". It is stamped with a mark that is attributed from an online source to Garrard & Company, silversmiths and jewelers to Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. The 4 piece tea and coffee set we have listed has the same mark. We have put an extended Garrard & Co. history on the Melon tea coffee service.

Due to the weight of the legs of the large coffee tea set there are 3 small indents in the tray. Sheffield plate is finer and softer than regular silverplate hollow ware. We have tried to get the small indents in photos and the deepest one we got to show for you. We also darkened one photo of the tray to try and show the minor indents. There are a also a few minor surface scratches which are too light to show up and normal for a lovely tray Circa 1920s in my opinion. This belonged to a well known family who were centered on the east coast to Indiana. Beautiful and superbly made. We are listing the Garrard Melon tea coffee set separately.
