This is a lovely example of old English Sheffield plate. The salver (or tray) was used for serving food or beverages. This smaller oblong size could be used for calling cards. Sheffield plate was introduced in 1742 and used until 1830 when electroplating became the norm.
This oblong salver has an applied gadroon border with shell corners and rests on paw feet. It has the wonderful patina of old silver. The dimensions are: 10" wide x 7-1/2" length. There is an area in the middle to engrave initials.

The condition is very good considering its age. There are slight scratches on the surface and the bottom is discolored in spots. One picture show where the top metal turns over to the bottom and is missing in spots. It is difficult to shoot silver because it reflects, so I apologize for some of my pictures.
