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.
