Coins on a silver tray

An English Silver Tray set with Three Pence Pieces

An unusual English silver hexagonal tray came up in the United Kingdom with hundreds of applied three pence silver coins from the Victorian era. Some of the coins have a young head of Queen Victoria, and others have a older Jubilee head of the Queen with her small diamond crown that she had made for herself later in life.

The use of coins in silver can be found all over the work from the Shreve hand hammered silver of San Francisco to the early French silver wine tasters.

This tray however makes quite a splash and is big enough to put a tea set on.

Below see the pictures of the hexagonal English silver tray by Martin and Hall with a detailed photo of the coins applied.
