In great condition, this very rare meat serving tray was brought back by a British World War two veteran. His initials RJS are scratched on to the reverse along with the date 1945. RJ Sherwood was with the Royal Engineers. He brought this piece back with him along with some other interesting items which will be listed.

Heavily silvered tray with the Deutsche Reichsbahn eagle on the high rim. For the German Railways

The tray is German silver marked Alpaka on the reverse. With a very attractive Hallmark of a steam locomotive and the letter B. "B" and a long train locomotive were the mark of the famous Bruckmann firm, the same firm that produced Hitler's Formal and Informal silverware. Under this is the number "242" this is the carriage designation for which pieces of silverware/tableware were assigned to each train car. This number is for the restaaurnt car of Hitlers train.
