Victorian Silverplate Fern Serving Tray

Victorian Silverplate Fern Serving Tray

$550.00

Deeply influencing late 19th century Western society and thought, naturalist Charles Darwin's ground-breaking theories reached far beyond biology, influencing art, literature and education. Case in point, this playfully romantic English Silverplate Serving Tray with its intricate fern design showcasing the very fashionable Victorian fascination with the natural world and botanical imagery.

Discovered at auction in northern England, this dazzling tray is adorned with an elegant array of lush fern species separated by a prominent pattern of stylized garlands. With a central bespoke engraving featuring the initials JC and the date June 17, 1897, this gleaming tray is sure to have been bestowed with honor to the recipient in recognition of a special achievement or on the occasion of a marriage. Sold by Pearce, an early incarnation of Leicestershire England-based Pearces Jewellers, the magnificent tray was likely produced for Pearce by Sheffield's esteemed Atkin Brothers or Roberts & Belk.

Founded in 1838 by Henry Pearce expanding to further shops in Huddersfield, Leeds, and Leicester, the family commissioned clocks, watches, and fine jewelry as well as gold and silver wares from expert makers in England and Europe. Made even more lovely by the articulated rope border surrounding the perimeter as well as the sturdy carry handles ensuring safe passage of the tray's contents, this magnificent tray is ready to serve in fine style for generations to come.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good antique condition. 25"W x 15.75"L.
