  • Details:   This truly beautiful, large, chrome gallery tray / serving tray with an etched pattern of shells, flowers and lattice would be a great addition to your home!  It has a reticulated (pierced) border and a rope design rim.  It retains its original box that identifies it as “Irvinware”, see below for a brief history of Irvinware.  What’s the best part about this tray?  It will never tarnish, although it looks like silverplate, it is chrome so will not tarnish.

Irvinware was trademarked by the Leonard Silver Company in April of 1968. They manufactured Stainless Steel and Chrome Plated Holloware, Bar Accessories (cocktails strainers, bar spoons, ice tongs, double jiggers, etc) , Kitchen Utensils (butter dishes, lemon squeezers, salt & pepper sets, sugar and creamer sets, lots of trays, etc).  According to an FTC Report of Mergers and Acquisitions dated October 1973, Beatrice Food acquired Irvinware.  This tray box is dated 1975 and shows Irvinware as a Division of Beatrice Food Co.  As unusual as it seems for a food company to own a silver company, from the late 1950s until the early 1970s, Beatrice Food had already acquire companies like: Avis Car Rental, Playtex, Shedd’s, Tropicana, John Sexton & Co, Good & Plenty, and many others.  In 1973 they added Irvinware to the long lineup.  But they didn’t stop there, in June 1984, Beatrice acquired Esmark, which included brands like: Swift & Co. and Hunt-Wesson.  On Aug 9, 1987 the TLC Group, a New York investment firm, agreed to buy the Beatrice International Food Co. for $985 million.  We believe since1990 it’s all owned by ConAgra.
