A large antique sterling silver tray of oval form with inset carrying handles. The decorative gallery is attractively pierced with a crisscross design. The underside has a hardwood base making the tray very strong. No inscription. Weight including wood 3364 grams, 108.1 troy ounces. Length 58 cms. Width 39 cms. Marked to the edge of the base rim with full English silver hallmarks for London 1886. Makers mark partially stamped, probably Joseph Angell.
This useful tray is very good condition with no damage or restoration. The silver hallmarks are clear. The makers mark is only partially stamped. No signs of erasures. The top surface is firm and has a very few minimal dinks. The wooden base has a split across the centre or maybe was originally made from 2 pieces, either way this cannot be seen when the tray is in use.
