    A couple of days ago, Signaholic ask me to post some of my trays, so here is the first one, it is probably one of my favorites. It is the 1901 9 1/2 inch serving tray showing a version of Hilda Clark with roses. I have always thought that it is one of the prettiest of the early trays, and it took me a few years to find it in the right condition. (it is probably and 8 maybe 8+). It was made by the Meek and Beech Company out of Coshocton, Ohio, and was produced from a light gauge metal, much lighter than the rectangular serving trays everyone is used to. I bought a few years ago, not long after I had completed the run of rectangular trays (1910-1950). I will continue to submit a few trays from time to time when I have them out of the display case, and can take a good photo of them.

      Wow, this is great to see up close, as close up as I've come, thanks for posting it earlycoke!
      You just don't see these out there too often anymore. They are very rare and scarce as hens teeth and much more valuable obviously. Thank you for the trouble earlycoke! Beautiful tray

      The early stuff is just amazing and pieces of this type are unbelievable. Museum quality. That's one of the great things about collecting Coca-Cola, so many objects, so many levels. Top shelf posting Blaine, thanks for sharing it!

      Great tray. I've been all over the internet trying to find a match for my small sign. It's basically similar to your tray, 9"x 14" but without the "Coca Cola" over her head, NO "Deliciously refreshing" to the right of her, & the Book faces us with "The Coca-Cola Co." "Home office: Atlanta ,GA." on left page & "Branches: Philadelphia New York Chicago Boston Los Angeles Dallas" on right page. Does anyone know anything about this steel or porcelon sign?
