  • Details
    This came to me with a group of vintage barware from an estate. The group was in general made up of high end sophisticated bar items from the trendy heyday of the "mixed drink" in the 1950s and 60s.

    With a little reseach, however, I discovered that this smart looking tray had a bit of a different origin from the home bar scene. Apparently it was manufactured by the Sunbeam Co. to accompany toasters and coffee pots and go to work serving at breakfast time and coffee breaks. It has the look of a nice heavy low lustre stainless steel, although it was identified as chrome by the manufacturer. The two black handles are made of sturdy bakelite.

    The tray is approx. 12 - 12.5 in diameter and the handles add another 2" to the diameter. The finish is in good condition for its age with only minor scuffing. There are some breaks in the painted black band around the sides of the tray, but the band's placement near the bottom of the piece causes them not to detract.

    It's a great old piece with lots of character for the mid-century vintage fan, but I like the idea of it serving at a home bar rather than a kitchen in a 2017 home. Check out the listings for the martini glasses and cocktail pitcher that were from the same estate for pictures to see how attractively the tray can work at your bar.
