This tray is most interesting. Its central motif shows Germany oldest general (Generalfeldmarschall, actually) of WW I, Graf von Haesler. This man, who was a cavalrymen, came from the Uhlans. He served Germany in four wars, in 1864, 1866, 1870, and in WW I. This serving tray has a wooden frame and wooden handles with brass trim. It measures 12 ½” x 7 7/8.” In the center under glass is a very colorful patriotic rendition of von Haesler with flags, banners, etc. Von Haesler is dressed in the feldgrau uniform of a Generalfeldmarschall. He is superimposed over an Iron Cross with the date 1914. In looking at this, I have come to the conclusion that this was at one time the lid of a cigar box. It was probably used to house fine Havana cigars! Today it can serve as a wonderful serving tray to hold your drinks when served at cocktail hour, or for any other purpose. Or, it would look neat on its own!
