HARDY BROS
'OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE'
SERVING TRAY


Absolutely spectacular two handled serving tray
Marked on base

HARDY BROS LTD
MADE IN ENGLAND
REPRODUCTION OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE

Sheffield plate is a process of silver plating on a base of copper, a much
more expensive process than EPNS which is silver plate on a white base metal
The original Sheffield plate was mainly used in the mid 19th century
This tray dates to the first half of the 20th century but is definitely
of the quality of the earlier pieces
and of course Hardy Bros pieces are always of the highest quality
and this tray is one of the best pieces of theirs I have seen
Ornately decorated their remains a blank cartouche in the centre
which could be engraved if presenting as a trophy or gift
From handle to handle it measures 60.5cm wide and 36cm across
It weighs a tonne (well, slight exaggeration but, it is extremely heavy)
which helps show the quality of the piece
I have tried to photograph as best as possible but it is
far more beautiful in the flesh than can be shown here
