ere for sale is a fantastic antique silver plate made by Mappin and Webb. It is fully marked on the back with the catelogue number W20235. This tray is early 20th Century as it stamped 'Mappin&Webb' and does not include 'Limited'. As with many Mappin and Webb items, we can not determine the date letter.
Etched on the the front is 'The Bude' and 'E'. We believe that these trays could have been used as as a captians or waiters tray for HMS Bude. HMS Bude is a Royal Navy Bangor-class Minesweeper comissioned in 1939 and launched in 1940. After world war Two the Bude was sold to Egypt in 1946. It remained in the Egyptian Navy until 1973.
This is a lovely item with lots of history. This listing is for one tray, we have two available.
Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.
