Description

Here we have a pair of beautiful Portuguese Silver (.833 purity… sterling is .925 by comparison) serving trays made by Joalharia Do Carmo. Each measuring a full 18.5″ (47cm) in length and weighing 3&1/4 lbs (1450 g), these luxurious platters feature a bead-like raised pattern around the rim; a simple, yet elegant design that is easy on the eyes. Identifying marks found on the underside of the item(s) read, “Joalharia Do Carmo Lisboa.” Underneath the text, two silver hallmarks can be found, one of an eagle with “833” in the mark, the number representing .833, Portugal’s “second standard” silver mark, and the other mark(s) consist of three arrows within a pentagon-like shape. We date this item at or before 1938, as this was when the ‘full eagle body’ sterling mark was used – thereafter, the Portuguese silver mark had been changed to just the eagle’s head.

No pitting, dents or deformations. Items present nicely for having been recently polished, and furthermore, cleaned of residual polish residue (we recommend they be thoroughly rinsed and wiped down before use). Trays show a moderate amount of surface knife marks consistent with previous occasional use; carving hams, turkeys and such. However, please note these marks have been partially polished out so as to have no raised edges, and are mostly smooth to the touch. A professional could buff out the remaining marks if you so choose. It’s no doubt these dazzling trays will be the talk of your next party or event!
