Silverplated tray made by the Florence Silver Plate Co. of Baltimore, Maryland which was in business from 1894 to 1942.

Cute kitty!

Thank you very much Uncle Vic :smiley:

Is it worth re-plating it and what kind of person would i contact to do it please?

Also, why can i not find any other examples of this tray anywhere :confused:

Its not worth replating - even in pristine conditon it has little or no value. This was produced by a very small maker and probably not many were made. The base metal (probably copper) was stamped rather poorly, as you can see the double strikes.

Thank you very much for your help Uncle Vic :wink:
