Hello - I just found & joined your forum today, and hoping you all may be able to help me. My Grandfather has passed, and my Grandmother keeps sending more & more items, as she goes thru their things they had collected over the 52 yrs. of marrage. - Many silver pcs., and I need help with identification, etc. First I would like to start with 2 trays - They are in rough shape from being in their attic for many years, but still beautiful, and I have no idea of age ,if silverplate or value, or if there is a way to restore them without devaluing them…??..
I have attached some pictures via Picasa of each. Larger is 27 " handle to handle -
21 and 1/2 " base in length and 16" wide. The smaller one is 22 and 3/4 " handle to handle - 18 " long and 13 " wide - I can find no Hallmarks either.I also have other pcs. that I could use info. on, if ayone might be willing to help.Here is a link to Picasa to view pictures of the trays.: I have more pics, should anyone be interested in seeing them.
Thank you for any information and help !!
