Antique Enamel Tastells Ice Cream Advertising Tray St. Joseph MO

Antique original TASTELLS ICE CREAM CO. Serving Tray. The maker signature on the tray is Kaufman & Strauss Co., N.Y. with a number of 3245. The tray itself is in nice condition, and measures approx 13 x 10.5 inches. I read that the TasTells Ice Cream Company was founded in 1923 in St. Joseph, MO, but I can't find any additional information about it. To me, the tray looks like it was made around the 1940s, but that is just a guess at this point. It has nice bright colors with blue, tan and orange. You'll notice chips and scratches around the edges and corners, as well as some on the surface of the tray as it was used. Also, there visible "bubble" stains on the left side ear the letters T and A. The back also has scratches from use and light stains. Despite the wear, it will display beautifully, as it has been in our home for several years. Enjoy!
