This broad shaped border is further embellished with simplified leaf designs to the outer circumference.

The central cartouche displays the contemporary engraved bright cut engraved crest of an ape sejant and guardant collared and chained, holding in the arms a young ape.

The hallmarked deep galleried border of this tray is embellished with pierced decorated floral motifs and urn style vases, in addition to a banded array of tiered leaf designs, all incorporating impressive bright cut engraved accents.

The tapering ends of the gallery each incorporate an oval inset handle.

The tray is further embellished with an applied moulded border to the upper rim and base.

This exceptional tray was crafted by the renowned London silversmith Charles Stuart Harris.
