The Chelsea factory sale catalogues of 1755 and 1756 reveals that most Chelsea tea services comprised eight teacups and saucers, eight coffee cups (sometimes with their own saucers), a teapot and stand, sucrier, jug, slop basin and a plate. Spoon trays are only occasionally mentioned and examples are extremely rare.

A slightly later red anchor period Chelsea spoon tray sold at Bonhams in May 2015 and a similar example to that one is illustrated by John C Austin, Chelsea Porcelain at Williamsburg (1977), fig.74, p.84
