Offering a unique cranberry glass and silverplate serving tray with dog head handles made by WMF in Germany circa 1910. The set includes a large silver plate tray and six cranberry glass and silverplate dessert cups. The tray is 14" across with an additional 3 1/2" for the two handles.

It stands 2" high on four 1" ball feet. It is ornately decorated with raised shields, leaves and scrolls in an armorial style. Each handle has two dogs, mouths agape, on either side.

The tray has a large welled area in the center which would hold a serving bowl. The bowl is not available. It also has six recessed rings to hold the dessert cups.

The cups are 3 3/4" across and stand 2 3/4" high. The bowls are cranberry glass shaped like flowers with six petals.

Three of the bowls are a lighter cranberry and three are darker, not unusual with cranberry glass. The cups have pedestal bases which are decorated to match the tray. The tray is marked with an ostrich, WMF and G, identifying it as the WMF Manufacturing Company in Germany, the mark used between 1900 and 1918. The cups are marked with I/O indicating normal silver coverage on the electroplated items. No breaks in the silver or damage to the decoration.

The silver has become thin in some areas with some copper showing. The cups have no chips, cracks or repairs. The glass is clean and clear.
