This is probably one of the most stylish cocktail trays that I’ve ever come across! I can’t say for certain how old it is, although personally I think it’s go a fair bit of age to it, but what what I can attest to is the quality of the tray, which is just fantastic! Sadly the black glass is quite scratched – although once it’s covered in a few bottles of your favourite tipple you’re not likely to notice the wear – but the rest of the tray is in great nick! The metal is nice and shiny, and just one look at the way that those handles are turned shows what a classy piece this is. In case you can’t tell, I really do love it!!
And how great do those pearlescent brandy snifters look sitting on that tray! It was like they were made for each other! There are one or two very slight manufacturing defects in the glass, but on the whole these glasses are in excellent condition! And if you’re not going to buy the tray to go with them, they would look just as striking sitting in a display cabinet. My brother-in-law has a great collection of vintage cocktail glasses in a drinks cabinet and they look very cool indeed!
P.S. Can you spot the ‘Kirsty & Justin’ on the wine label? Part of a very sweet wedding gift from some very sweet friends! Lovely idea…..
