This FB Rogers Silver Co 1883 heavy serving tray is an entertainer’s dream. At Christmas I put 15 glasses on it for our annual toast and there was room for more! I got many compliments on how beautiful and unusual it is. The top of the tray has a raised shell, flower and leaf design that is over 1″ wide and 1/4″ thick. I appears to be hand, not machine, made. A few of the higher areas on the trim have the silver plate rubbed off but it looks like it is meant to be that way to accentuate the pattern. The serving top of the tray has an all-over light feather and flower scroll design. There are slight scratches and two tiny dents from regular use for a catering tray. On the back two places have the words, “Four Seasons Catering” lightly hand engraved. The tray rim has a small bend. I didn’t even notice this bend when I bought it from an antique store so it is not noticed unless it is inspected carefully. It does not affect the use of the tray in any way. I have seen only one like this and it was re-plated. This is a lovely tray with strength and character. Sadly, no more big parties for me and now it’s your turn to enjoy this piece of days gone by.
