King Henry IV Serving Tray
Serving trays originated in the mid-seventeenth century. At the time, a feast was often prepared in a large kitchen and brought out to the table on a decorative platter. I could be filled to the brim with venison, pork, veal, or poultry. As time went on, it was discovered that a serving platter wasn’t just functional but fashionable as well. In the early nineteenth century, they weren’t used for just food, but decorative purposes as well.
This boutique tray resembles a charming serving tray but is much too pretty to be functional. The shagreen overlay gives this statement piece a look of texture, while the brass handles add a flare of sheen. It would look bold and pleasing sitting on a coffee table with a decorative candle.
Comes in two sizes in different colors. Imported. Handling Fee is $20.
