This Art Nouveau Silver Plate crumb tray and brush is a very stylish entertaining piece. If you have caterers or other serving personnel, this is just one of these genteel touches that come with great service. Brush the crumbs of the table cloth between courses and the meal can go on without unsightly debris. Guests are made more comfortable. The styling and execution of this piece is typical Art Nouveau, with curled edges and flowers. It is made by the Rockford silver plate company in quadruple plate. This dates it to the end of the 19th century. The condition of the set is good, there are some use scratches on the pan and a few dull spots, but nothing that detracts from the overall piece. This is consistent with age and, because of the quadruple plate, there is no loss of plate.
