  • Pattern:  1910 Ford Torpedo Serving Tray, Vintage
  • Vintage:  1950's - 1960's (estimated)
  • Details:   This collectible tray was issued by the Ford Motor Company, most likely in the 1950's - 1960's as part of an advertisement campaign.  It has a wonderful illustration of a 1910 Model-T Ford Torpedo Roadster.  Did you know that Henry Ford conceived a series of cars from 1903 to 1908, when he finally introduced the Model-T?  He named it Model-T because he had run through the alphabet starting with Model-A up through Model T, twenty models in five years!!  The scene on this tray shows a couple in the Ford convertible, all bundled up, as this looks like a fall or winter scene.  Very few leaves on the trees, and everything's brown but they seem to be enjoying the ride.  There is a sticker on the front that reads:  "Reconditioned by Authorized Preconditioner" and the Ford word mark on the blue ribbons.  Not sure if this is a "thing" for these trays.  The store we purchased it from had a sticker (on back, we left it for you): "Ford Certified Tray" again, not sure if this is really something Ford would do, or someone just placed a sticker on the tray.  This is not only a wonderful serving tray, it would be a great piece of decor for a bar or man-cave, or as part of your fall / winter decor/display.  
  • Material:  Metal
