Related trays with carrying handles, but with fixed sides, were supplied by both Thomas Chippendale and Alexander Peter to the 5th Earl of Dumfries for Dumfries House. On the 31 May 1760, Peter invoiced ‘To 5 Mahogany choiced bottle boards 1s E’. On the 4 March 1763, Chippendale & Rannie included in their bill: ‘6 neat mahog.y Bottle boards with brass rims…9s’.
Lots 67 and 68 in the Dumfries House Sale show two almost identical trays with hinged sides – these are possibly the ‘2 large mahogany Butler’s Trays, £1.3-‘ supplied by Thomas Chippendale on 4 March 1763.
