Vintage MH Wilkens & Son German 200g 830 Silver Tray: 8 inch diameter
This is a rather beautiful Vintage MH Wilkens & Son German 200g 830 Silver Tray with fluted edges, and measures 8 inches in diameter.
830 silver, as marked on the base, in addition to the numbers, 2718 210 (dating to the late 19th Century).
It is in vintage second hand condition with some discolouration spots, surface scratches and a slight dent: these may polish out.
It weighs in at hefty 200g (worth over £60 in scrap at today’s silver price for 0.800 silver).
According to the silver hallmark website 925-1000.com, this one seems to have been made by “M. H. Wilkens & Söhne” in Bremen-Hemelingen Germany.
This is an image of the hallmark for you to compare with the one on the base of the plate.
A nice decorative item with fluted ‘flower-like’ edging. It would look lovely full of sweets on a sideboard, with sparkling crystal shot glasses in your drinks cabinet, or provide somewhere to hold your keys on a hall table.
