Hi There~

My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.

At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.

When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.

When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.

There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.

Sincerely,

Nora

Hi,

Thank you for the images. Your tray is silver plate, and not sterling silver. Silverplate does not have a precious metal meltdown value. The serving tray has a decorative pierce cut rim and chase engraved center decoration. The D&H is for the maker name, possibly Deykin & Harrison from England. Generally plated serving trays sell for under $50 on today's market, however yours is created with a fine quality style for plate and could thus sell for $150 - $300 on today's market.
