A pewter tray is a unique serving piece that will present your foods and beverages in style. These trays are still handcrafted using traditional methods, each one an impressive statement about your good taste and perfect for entertaining. Pewter is a metal alloy made of at least 90 percent tin, soft and malleable enough to be decorated in detail. Trays made of pewter are often finely etched and embellished, a technique that reveals the fine silvery glow inherent in pewter.

The Pewter Tray Serves in Style

There are few serving pieces that make the elegant statement of the tray. The use of the tray when entertaining is a time-honored tradition that serves an important function while giving an opportunity to show your style. A tray can be round, oval, rectangular or square in shape. A round tray serves hors d'oeuvres and desserts, an oval tray is ideal for appetizers and tea sets and any shape can hold several plates for delivering food and drink.

A small pewter tray is an excellent serving piece, versatile for many functions. It can be placed under a gravy boat or a cream and sugar set. It can also give each guest his or her own tray full of appetizers. A delicate little tray for each member of the wedding party, or as a favor for party guests, would make a unique gift idea.

The beauty and durability of pewter make it the ideal medium for serving pieces that reflect the timeless quality of craftsmanship. A handcrafted pewter tray is a striking statement, perfect for display and for practical use. A set of serving trays will become a useful and stylish addition to the table, enjoyed for many years of entertaining and daily wear.
