Pewter Valet Tray - Royal Selangor

$99.00 AUD

Size Dia 15.5cm

More expensive to produce than flatware with circular rims, wavy-edged plates of the 18th century were indicators of prestige and polite dining. Liberty’s eight-lobe double-reed valet tray will hold pennies and other oddments with ease, and, polite or otherwise, finger food.

A Royal Selangor piece exudes an elegant sculptural presence derived from the softness and versatility of pewter which is fashioned in a variety of finishes – a traditional soft satin lustre, a dazzling brilliance that rivals silver or a subdued ‘antique’ finish. 

Royal Selangor high quality cast pewter consists of 92% to 97% tin, with a small proportion of copper and antimony added to strengthen the alloy – the highest international standard for pewter. It is heavier and stronger than spun pewter. When struck gently, it produces a resonant sound.  

Each piece is hallmarked with Royal Selangor’s maker’s mark, Sn920 for tin content, and the tiger’s head for country of manufacture.

Depending on the finish, pewter can be cleaned using two major methods:

   - Wash in warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry immediately with soft flannel.
   - Polish as silver, with a good brand of silver polish and soft flannel.
