I have been given a silver coloured tray and wondered if I can find some more information about it. It belonged to the Grandmother of the person who gave it to me (who is 80), so we think it is possibly from about 1900.
He believes it is silver but we don’t know anything else about it, except that it was used with silver dinner set that included soup tureens etc. The marks are not normal silver marks as far as I can see.
It is tarnished quite badly. Should I simply clean it with soap and water then silver polish?
I’ve photographed it and the marks are quite clear.
Please can anyone help me?
