Today we are delighted to offer for sale a lovely antique/vintage silverplate warming tray or footed plateau by the renowned French luxury silversmith company Christofle! The plateau is designed in an ornate Victorian or Rococo style with flourishes, shell motifs, leaves and plumes. The top plate is removable and held securely in place with a lipped edge which fits snugly into the round stand. There is a small round holder in the base to the warmer unit. Marked on the bottom of the ring “57 (logo) CHRISTOFLE,” and the bottom of the plate “624912 (logo) CHRISTOFLE.” Plateau presents very well and is in very good antique condition, with very minor surface wear and tarnishing/scuffing. There are a few areas of wear on the top surface and small indentation in the center. One of the feet is slightly bent inwards. This is a lovely serving piece and nice addition to an antique silver collection. Fresh to the market from a Rhode Island estate!
Dimensions: 9 1/2″ in diameter x 4″ in height.
