i am extremely pleased to offer for your consideration this rare and truly amazing late Victorian REPOUSSE' TRAY / SALVER from Charles Dimier & Company of London, England, c.1901.

This tray, if that is what one would call it, is so richly detailed, the repousse' relief so deeply set; the design so beautifully executed, one can hardly imagine actually serving anything on it! i have never seen another like it and wondered if in fact it were actually a tray. The relief is such that it would seem to be more fitting of a mould, but again, i cannot imagine doing anything with this wonderful piece other than showing it off!

The imagery is wild - an orgy of parrots, snakes and floral and coiled swirls. The 'piece' measures ~11"(28cm) long by 8"(20.5cm) and 5/8"(17cm) deep with a nice weight of 198grams(9.6oz.Tr). The outer rim is a sloped crimped design with a full set of clear marks set in ~1-1/2" in from the lower left corner. They read:

Maker Mark: CD in chamfered lozenge - Charles Dimier & Co. London, England Date Code: lower case f - 1901 Purity Mark: Lion Passant - .925 Sterling Silver Assay/Town Mark: Leopard (no crown) London, England

Condition overall is very good-excellent and there is no monogram. There is some corner crimping and a few tiny 'dimples' in the smooth domed centre area. Though visible, this is not overt and with reflections/interference the latter is nearly impossible to depict in photos. i am sure capable hands could easily remedy this but in my opinion it is not warranted (be sure not to confuse reflections for flaws).For maximum photo detail, after selecting an image to view be sure to click on it again to enlarge to super-size. Other pics available upon request.

This truly is a remarkable tray - a great conversation piece and a rarity - certainly not something you will see again in a while!
