Stunning, rare, antique, silver plate, figural faces, Greek Revival serving tray circa 1872. Each corner has 3 dimensional, Greek style Goddess faces. The face has etched griffins and shields and the middle is personalized, " Presented to C. Powers President By Members of Hibernian Society 1872". This tray is a gorgeous piece of history. It's solid and heavy and can be used and displayed for generations to come.
This tray is still in beautiful, antique condition. It doesn't appear to have plating loss, but possible wear on the face and some areas on the underside, the dark areas seem more like stubborn tarnish--especially in the etched areas and deep crevices of the faces that should come out with more aggressive polishing, or professional polish. This tray was black when I first acquired it and it's become very shiny with progressive polishes. It looks much better in person and the stubborn tarnish isn't obvious without looking in different lighting (the camera picks up and accentuates any flaws).
Measurements: approx 16 1/2" long x 12 5/8" wide
Marks: No makers marks are seen but there are numbers 28 above 16G
