Art Nouveau Silver Plated Butler Tray Iris Handles X Large
WOW what a find! This is a huge Art Nouveau Silver Plated Butler's Tray from International Silver Co in the Iris pattern. We believe this may have been produced as early as 1930 but we are erring on the side of caution and are listing it as produced in 1940. It is heavy and in good used condition for its age showing only a few tiny pit marks and light scratching which shows in certain light from years of polishing but only adds to its character. Wonderful Iris Handles on both sides for carrying. Marked on the back Silver Iris International Company 981.

Outstanding Art Nouveau era piece signed F. Flora. At first glance, I thought this 23 1/2 Stand was a Ashtray but info derived from the prominent estate from which it was purchased referred to it as a Calling Card Stand. It would've been placed at the entrance of a business and patrons would place their Calling/Business Cards in the insert at the top. The insert has a tab handle on each side and can be pulled out. It has no place where a Cigarette or Cigar can lay at rest so perhaps the assessment of it's purpose is correct. I'm sure those of you who deal in these type of items would know for certain. The inside portion of the Stand is hollow. The Stand is made of what I believe is White Metal or what they refer to as Spewter. Research has indicated that the full name of the designer is Francisco Flora who was born in 1857 and did most of prominent works during the late 1800's. Overall condition of the piece is excellent. There is some slight wear to the patina on her face. Please note the different facial image of each side. Just beautiful and finely detailed. It's difficult to make out but the bottom underside has small letters incised what looks like EPres. Would make just a fine addition to any Art Nouveau collection. Buyer to pay shipping & insurance.
