The Tray is oval in form with a raised reeded rim and side handles. The outer edge is beautifully engraved with bright cut and prick dot bands, in addition to drapery swags and foliate motifs. The centre is engraved with a contemporary shield shaped Armorial, with Crest above. The Arms are all surrounded by an exceptionally engraved cartouche of drapery mantling, one of the finest we have seen over the years. The Tray is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the reverse. The Armorial & Crest are those of Oliver of Exeter, impaling Brooke. The Olivers were a prominent family in Exeter from at least the early 18th century. Elizabeth Jones was the widow of Robert Jones and was an exceptional Tray and Salver maker, working during the last decade of the eighteenth century.
