Question
I have a 12inch tray that reads on the back"King's Plate E.P.Brass 794. It is about 60 years in my possession, has a scroll pattern on the bottom surface, and vertical indents around the !inch high sides. Is there an approximate value that you can determine?

Answer
Hello.

I'm not familiar with this specific tray. In fact, I don't know anything about the marks on the back except that "794" probably is the model number. Therefore, I can't be certain with a value estimate. I can say that the vast majority of items like this have a value in the range of $10 to $20 when sold by an individual. It's unfortunate that silver plate items don't hold value very well.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
