Aluminum Trays and Plates, My Collection

While thinking about a blog topic, I totally forgot about my aluminum tray and plate collection.  Featured is part of my collection today.

This photograph shows my kitchen wall.  I have an open floor plan in my house with only one weight bearing wall.  My living room, dinning room and kitchen flow into each other with a beamed ceiling.  On the kitchen wall I have an eclectic collection of odds and ends.

The far left dish was an odd one found at a junk store.  It is marked Winsor Ware FB & C, Johnson Bros., England, Garden Bouquet.

Aluminum trays and plates were often given as wedding gifts during the 1950’s.  This is the first plate I picked up in the Good Will.  I love the bunches of grapes that are punched into the dish.  It is marked with Everlast Forged Aluminum.

Aluminum items with markings are more valuable than those without.
