Literature. The first Antique Silver Trays were oval shaped and did not appear until the late 18th century. The rectangular form was not generally seen until the early 1800’s. Some early salvers were originally called trays however this term is only used now when there are side carrying handles.
Large trays are often called tea trays and they were often made as part of an extensive and fully matching tea service. Long slender trays are popular for use as drinks trays. Extra large trays are particularly prized by interior designer for use as a coffee or side table.
