Vintage Silverplate Asparagus Serving Tray

Vintage Silverplate Asparagus Serving Tray

$225.00

A lovely find for sure, this gleaming Vintage Silverplate Asparagus Tray was produced by Britain's premier silversmiths: Mappin & Webb. 

Designed to go directly from steaming to serving, this unique tray consists of two parts: a beautifully pierced drain tray with four tall attached handles and a lower tray designed to catch any drips of liquid.

To use, simply place the spears of asparagus on the pierced tray, lower it into a steam bath and when ready to serve, remove from the bath using the four tall handles and place directly on the lower tray. The four bun feet on the bottom of the pierced tray ensure that your asparagus spears are held above any moisture and remain perfectly crisp-tender!

No stranger to presentation, this magnificent asparagus tray will be an elegant addition to your silver collection. 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 12.5” x 7.5”, by 4.75” tall In very good vintage condition with only a few discreet signs of age and use.

Learn More about Mappin & Webb

In 1810, Joseph Mappin founded an engraving business in Sheffield, England.  The business was eventually passed down to one of his sons (also named Joseph) who carried it on as a producer of cutlery.  Upon his death in 1841, the firm was managed by his son Frederick Mappin, who brought his brothers into the business, naming the firm Joseph Mappin & Co.

In 1846, the business changed its name to Mappin Brothers.  Its partners were the brothers, Frederick, Edward, Joseph and John Mappin.  In 1850, John left Mappin Brothers to establish a new firm originally trading under the name Mappin & Co, but changing its name in 1863 to Mappin & Webb to avoid confusion between the two firms. 

Mappin Brothers continued to operate until 1902 when it merged with Mappin & Webb to eventually become the premier silversmith of England.
