Stunning Important England Large Ornate Silver Tray Grape & Vine $2,200 Years Ag For SaleIpurchasedthis amazing tray in 2000 for over the $560 (that price met the reserve), and you know what the price of silver has done since then! The lady I purchased it from paid severalthousand dollars for it (see photos of original sale listing).
I have not been able to identify the hallmark/trademark of the Grecian style urn - but this tray isdefinitelyBritish - Made in england, where they did the E/P on copper style ofsilver-plating. It is LARGE and HEAVY. The tray itself weighs 12# 15 oz. It is 23 inches long (not counting the handles), and they add 3" to each side for a total of 29" It is 17.5 to 17" wide.
I love the detail of the repousse (metal work) with elaborate scrolls and grapes and vines and leaves.
This tray is perfect for a new bride (I understand silver tea/coffee sets are quite popular again) or for a serving tray for your entertaining needs - or for setting up wine bottles, etc. (maybe dad is a wineconnoisseurand would love this for Fathers Day)? It will make a beautiful and impressive display.
The handling fee for this item is $2.20 for signature confirmation (required for packages over $250) + $10.30, which is what it will cost via 's private SHIP-Cover insurance to insure it for $600. It it sells for higher than that, I will pay for the additional insurance. I have the box (3#12 oz), so with additional packing materials, am planning on a shipping weight of 17-18# (am hoping to offer Fed Ex as a shipping option for the first time).

I want you to be happy, have a great experience, and get a good value - same thing I want when buying on :-). That said, the reason I have a no return policy is that I am not a store.
