Antique James W. Tufts Bread Tray Dish Silver Plate Pierced Figural ~ Rare:
ANTIQUE JAMES W. TUFTS BREAD TRAY DISH
SILVER PLATE PIERCED FIGURAL ~ RARE
I have been a dealer of antiques for over 30 years and am now starting to sell items from my personal collection. I am a collector of figural items so I was very excited when I found this tray. It is a lovely Victorian silver plate footed tray. It has gorgeous pierced sides that are sculpted with figures including a boy blowing horns, lion heads, griffons or wild birds, and floral designs. Very dimensional with great detail. The front of the tray is engraved “Bread” in calligraphic lettering. The underside is hallmarked “James W. Tufts Boston Warranted Quadruple Plate 4304”. Tufts was one of the best in his time and his pieces are considered to be top quality. The dish could use a good polishing. I have used this piece for multiple purposes including sitting on a table in my foyer to collect my keys as I entered. Or it can be displayed anywhere in your home as a beautiful decorative object. Authenticity is guaranteed – this is NOT A REPRODUCTION!
CONDITION: Very nicecondition; no dents, breaks, cracks or repairs. Could use a good polishing.
DATE/MARKS: 19th century; marked "James W. Quadruple Plate4304”
DIMENSIONS: 14.5 inches x 9.5 inches
