Item details

Vintage from the 1980s

This sweet, Art Nouveau-style tray is perfect for candies, jewelry, business cards or whatever small trinkets you have in mind!

Made of cast pewter, the petite, handled-dish is beautifully decorated with detailed Morning Glory flowers, spiral buds, leaves and vines. As the Morning Glory blooms and dies within a single day, this particular flower symbolizes love and affection as well as mortality.

I am offering as found and have not attempted to clean or polish. That being said, the scalloped-edged piece is in excellent vintage condition with no bends, breaks or repairs and very minimal surface scratching. Even though the tray sits on four dot feet, there is a significant wobble. Measurements are: 6 7/16" in diameter (7 7/8" wide at handles) by 5/8" high.

There are four separate marks on the bottom of the tray:

E P U (European Pewter Union)
121 (121 represents the country and maker - 1 for Italy; 21 for ?)
EUROPE
ETAIN (French - Tin) ZINN (German - Tin)

95% ZINN (95% represents the purity of the pewter)

FEIN (Fine)
(Scrollwork)
ZINN (Tin)

Symbol of crossed hatchets and stars along with another symbol that resembles crossed "U"s. These graphics are encircled in a chain made up of closed circles.

Stand shown in photos is for display purposes and is not included.

Item price includes US Postal Service shipping with Insurance and / or Delivery Confirmation services.

Additional policies

As with the nature of any antique / vintage item, there may be signs of past use or wear. We do our best to photograph and list any imperfections in an individual item's listing details, but please keep in mind that the majority of what we sell has been previously owned and used. We strive to deliver high quality items in good functional, usable, working condition, but our antique / vintage items are all sold on an AS IS basis.

We thoroughly inspect and research to accurately represent our antique and vintage items; but in some cases, the information we provide about an item's age or origin cannot be guaranteed. Any errors made are unintentional with no thought to mislead or deceive.

As all individual item prices include shipping, handling and insurance, please convo us when purchasing multiple items - we will combine item weight and adjust the total shipping cost to maximize savings for you.
