MOROCCAN VINTAGE - Page 4

SILVER and BRASS SERVING TRAYS

A small selection of our many vintage trays appears on this page. Almost all are around 60 to 70 years old and have come from homes in the Middle and High Atlas where they would have been a prized possession.

Some of the trays show signs of wear, a witness to the decades over which they have earned their place at innumerable family celebrations, and to the lavish care with which they have been maintained.



LARGE OVAL TRAY with CLASSIC GEOMETRIC PATTERN

A repeating pattern of interwoven geometrics covers the surface of this beautiful tray. A decorative inner border of tiny flowers, is surrounded by a raised motif and finished with two very elegant handles. The tray weighs around 15 lbs and can be converted to a traditional low table by attaching short metal legs to the sockets on the underside of the tray..

CUPOLA and FLAGS TRAY

I love finding trays with this type of lacy cutwork around the edge. It sets off the centre pattern so well, and the pattern here is something special. Two five-pointed figures are offset and superimposed on each other. The ends of the most visible shape is capped with a curvaceous cupola and flanked by billowing flags carrying the five pointed Moroccan star.

This tray has been so well polished over the years that the underlying silver metal shows through in some areas.
