I have 6 of these supposedly original , according to the lady I purchased from , she said they where her Fathers .
The paper on the tin has the print with Blue & Red dots , Can't seem to find a date for them.
Any Ideas ?
Thanks, Billy

Hi Billy, I think your tray is a 70s or 1980s reproduction of a 1908 tray.

Hi billy, I will bet you a drink that the trays are not that old. Their might even be fine print on the bottom edge of one of your trays. I have handled a lot of trays. I cant remember ever having an early one with a
goldish color to the bottom. I have even had a couple small trays that I tried to convince my self were old.

Look at this one I sold on eBay a couple months ago,

Have a good day, Arty

artyy, what would you like to drink .. I have checked all around the edges , back,top etc. and there is no fine print anywhere. The one on ebay similar to mine is not as narrow as mine. The lady I got them from was in her mid 50's or so and said they where her Fathers.
The pixels show red & blue dots , at times a matrix pattern, I have never seen a print from the 70's like that..
If you live within 5 miles from me , you got your drink..

Hi Billy, the narrowness is because of the angle of the photograph.

PS- I can't believe i could not fond the mark on your porcelain partridge figure. England I believe. Later

But I got lucky on my tray. LoL

PS- I have a friend that is a Pepsi collector, I will ask his opinion.
I might be wrong.

Go help out the last poster on the Lazlo Neogradi print.
I have to go back to cleaning my basement.
