Beautiful antique China Trade Solid Silver Tray with a fabulous engraved Dragon motif around the border of the tray (there are 4 Dragons in all). And, in the center of the Tray is a large plain oval with a village scene, with mountains, houses and various botanical foliage surrounding it. The outer border of the Tray is scalloped with a raised Bamboo motif. The design of this Tray is very clever and wonderfully thought out and crafted. Designed in essence, like water rings. The Tray stands on 4 stylized 'stepped' feet and measures 5 1/8" long and 3 3/4" wide. The unmarked Tray dates to the late 19th Century. Exceptionally handsome small antique Solid Silver Dragon Tray. Is in fine condition and even prettier and more detailed in person.
