Revere Pewter and Porcelain Round Vintage Floral Tray - 1940s Cherry Branch Pattern with Felt Backing -
Life is just a bowl of cherries, don't take it serious, it's mysterious. Bob Fosse
In this century, our modern one, Revere Pewter is the name of a Benjamin Moore paint color. Last century, Revere Pewter was a company who made this pretty pewter and porcelain tray that features cherry blossom branches in shades of pink, green and brown. Along with a magnolia version, Revere also made a flying duck series in this same style around the 1940's, all of which made wonderful serving trays for cocktail hour or tea-time.
The floral designs are the hardest to find, so we are thrilled to be able to offer this one in the shop. The pewter rim bears some dents - most likely from how it was carried as caused by thumb indents. This adds a lovely intimate characteristic to this tray. Your imagination quickly takes over thinking about the type of people that carried this tray before you. Was it a midcentury career gal serving drinks to her pals? Or a butler carrying fluted champagne glasses for the 1950's country club set? Or maybe a retired flapper from the prohibition age who still enjoyed a glass or two of gin each night?

As stated previously, there are some dents in the pewter around the rim. This does not affect the use of the tray in any way as the tray is still perfectly functional and in wonderful shape. Designs are bright with crisp, clear lines. Felt backing is securely attached to base.
