This is a rare ORIGINAL canasta tray in the Colonial Homestead pattern by Royal China. It is comprised of a 10-inch dinner plate and a 12-inch platter along with the original hardware. It stands 10 inches tall. There are no chips, cracks or crazing on the plates. This type of item is often called a tidbit tray. The vast majority of tidbit trays are not original and were either home made or made up in the aftermarket. This item is in the same style as pictured in an original Colonial Homestead Ad, which can be seen by clicking on the image on the left for more details.
