Art Deco Skyscraper Style Silver Plated Tray with Chased Geometric Designs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This exquisite Art Deco sterling silver plate tray features an octagonal body incised throughout with geometric designs. The center of the tray repeats the octagonal shape of the body, but it is polished without ornamentation. The exterior border, measuring two and one half inches wide, offers a wealth of tessellated triangular forms, while the engraved perimeter edge appears slightly raised. Some of these overlapping angular geometric shapes appear chased with repeating straight lines while others are imprinted with an abundance of miniscule dots. This would be a wonderful tray for serving hors' doeuvres like blini with caviar, or alternately for presenting precious objet d'art. Stamped "Benedict Modernistic" on the bottom.

American, circa 1930
