This Regency-period silver platter was crafted by the great Paul Storr and displays the timeless artistry and high-quality craftsmanship associated with the silversmith's hand. An elaborate gadrooned border punctuated by acanthus leaves encircles the tray, and at its top center is an engraved armorial, indicating it was crafted for a client of import.

A salver is a flat tray of silver or other metal used for carrying or serving glasses, cups and dishes at the table or presenting a letter or card by a servant. In a royal or noble household, the fear of poisoning led to the custom of tasting the food or drink before it was served to the master and his guests, known as the assay of meat and drink. In Spanish, the term for this process was called “salva.” The term “salva” was soon applied to the dish or tray on which the food or drink was presented after the tasting process; by the 19th century, the term evolved to "salver," which became a popular serving tray on the English table.
