For sale is a fine, heavy and older # X275 serving tray or dish made by Reed & Barton. It is a substantial, nicely crafted piece made the way good American Sterling Silver was pre-1970's. It is a figural leaf shape and design with the inside ribs rising up to create a scalloped, turned under rim edge. It measures 12-1/4" long, 5-3/4" wide and is approx 1" deep; it weighs 10 regular ounces, t is nothing flimsy or tinny about this piece of Sterling. It is in very good condition, the surface is smooth and most indications of use are really just the marks left when the shiny silver surface is repeatedly polished. Each end has a dent, the turned edge is turned under more in these two spots; they are both minor, the one on the small end is smaller than the one on the wider end, you can hardly tell they are t when you are looking down on the piece, they show mostly when the tray is looked at upside down; I tried to show the bigger one in the third photograph but it is almost impossible to see. I think both dents could be easily fixed by a metalsmith or even someone good with their hands. The bottom is incised "Reed & Barton Sterling, X275" and it also has the silver foil tag with "Reed & Barton Sterling" still on the bottom. Please feel free to email with any questions and thank you for looking. Note: The last photo was taken without the flash, it is a bit dull and off color but does show the design more distinctly than those taken with the flash.
