We are delighted to offer this Magnificent solid silver Georgian tray/salver made by Irish silversmith James Fray in Dublin, 1833.

From first glance, the salver presents an array of remarkable and striking features such as the applied cast-silver border, an intricately chased inner wreath and a fine engraving of military interest in the centre.

The cast-silver border is profusely decorated in rococo fashion with vine leaves, grapes and acanthus scrolls - all intricately interwoven and pierced to form a majestic outer border.

The inner wreath is equally noteworthy with a superbly chased design consisting of acanthus leaves, flowers and Griffin figures.

The centre of the salver is beautifully engraved with a Crest and the following message:

"Presented to Lieutenant Colonel Gustavus Rochfort by the Nobility, Gentry, Clergy, and Freeholders of the County of Westmeath"

The salver is supported by three cast-silver feet.

The salver presents full Irish hallmarks that are clearly marked on the top of the inner wreath.

This salver most certainly presents a magnificent and intricate charm to its design whilst also retaining a practical size allowing for numerous uses.

With a touch of creativity, this piece could be used on multiple occasions for display, or usage with food, desserts or presentation amongst other silverware.
