Antique English Silver Salver

  • Sheffield, 1904 by John Round and Sons
  • Dimensions: 14 inches in diameter

English Silver Salvers are rich in history as they have been around for several centuries. The term “salver” originated in England in the 17th century. A salver is a tray without handles. They were originally used to serve food in dishes and refreshments in glasses. In the 18th and 19th centuries, salvers were generally used to indicate people’s wealth and show off their status. This is exemplified in the more elaborate the designs were, the more affluent a person was.

The surface has a lovely chased floral design which resonates throughout the piece.
