Just an old vintage copper platter tray I found. It looked lonely laying there in that box on the ground. But somethings just appear out of nowhere; especially when your not expecting them to.
I felt an attraction immediately. I don’t know that there is anything special about this old copper platter. Perhaps, although it looks as if A king could have been served a leg of lamb from this platter.
Jim told me not to but it, but I did. Only a few shillings, (sterling) I think. He said it looks as if has been run over by a wagon train a few times.
It’s very old, yet it’s charm still remains. I bet it has a story. Probably goes back to the Dutch East Indies, but I don’t know. I found it in Amsterdam this summer. Brought it home and gave it some love and found the etchings. Maybe someone will know where it came from. I hope.
This is a round in diameter and it has a scalloped copper edge. The platter is intricately engraved writing. It is made of heavy gauge copper and is very sturdy.
I guess I will never know it’s past, but anyway I still love this old copper platter.
