    I found this tray and bought it even though I promised myself to seriously cut down on porcelain purchases because of space restrictions. Anyway, the tray is unmarked but could be German. The back has a number, possibly a mold number. The back is also very similar to a piece of porcelain I have that was made in Germany.
    My best guess about the age of the tray is that it might have been made in the early part of the 1900's.
    The tray is larger than a typical celery tray.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Nutsabotas6, I have no idea what it was meant for. The pattern would be nice for a dresser set but I think it is too curvy for that:)

      Another nice piece of RS Prussia. Collectors refer to this mold as the "Swag and Tassel" mold. It dates to the 1905-1910 period. The largest dishes of this shape (sometimes up to 14 inches in length) are called bun or bread trays. Smaller trays of the same shape are for celery, pickles, spoons, olives ,etc. Now you should try to find one of each size in a matching décor. Good luck!

      rjkinkent, thanks so much for your help. You have helped me before with one of my other items and I really appreciate it. When I saw this tray, I immediately wanted to buy it because its quality stands out. Usually I stay away from anything that is not close to perfect but I bought this one even though is has a bit of wear on the gilded edge.
      I'll try to find the matching ones in the other sizes but I have a feeling it will take a while:)
      Once again, thanks for your help!
