This magnificent antique Victorian sterling silver tea tray has an oval shaped form.

The well of the tray is encircled with exceptional bright cut engraved decoration depicting two oval and six circular scrolling leaf and circular motif bordered panels paralleling the incurved shaped border.

Each panel is separated by a stylised leaf motif and depicts a fine and impressive alternating floral spray design and fruiting ornamentation in addition floral and foliate designs to the lower portion.

The decoration to the well of the tray incorporates a shaped vacant cartouche to the centre.

The raised border of the tray is encircled with fine and impressive chased husk ornamentation above a band of bead decoration.

The shaped rim of the tray is embellished with an impressive applied bead decorated border incorporating chased leaf motifs to each lobe and incurve.
