    Antique 19th century Jack Of Diamonds serving tray really unique

    Hey everyone. I have a question about this very old serving tray from the 19th century. It was used to entertain guests who were playing cards (poker) my question is, how many of you would find such an antique interesting? Do you collect just poker chips? Or is there an interest in related items such as this with an imprint of the jack of diamonds on it.

    I find it very interesting... great art work... I just wish it were a little bigger! That's the kind of item that when it arrives in the mail you pull it out of the package and say, "I didn't realize it was this small"... lol

    Well you have to keep in mind that in the early 19th century small was good. The trays wouldn't be to gorge yourself of a meal while playing, but simply to put some sweets or snacks at each place at a card table. Very similar to the very small salt dips or shakers at Victorian tables. They were crazy about lots of little touches of dinnerware and entertaining then, unlike now, where you might put a quart sized bowl of peanuts out for everyone to share.
