Item Name: SCALLOPED CEREMONIAL PLATTER
Item Number: 178
This 24 inch metal tray, mixed with some copper, is a fine example of antique Middle Eastern Persian hand engraved art trays. The tray has the added detail of scalloped trim.Tom LaClair purchased this tray at an antique shop in Adana, Turkey, in 2007. The tray is quite old, however, the exact date is unknown. The antique dealer in Turkey stated it was well over 100 years old, and was likely used to bring a bride and groom their first meal as a married couple at their wedding celebration. Thank you to Tom LaClair of Clayton NewYork for this generous donation, and his continued support of WPBS-TV.
