I have had this tray before but not in this condition. This one is nearly flawless.  I have photographed it with a mug to show the size better. This lovely metal tray measures 19″ across.  Kaffeeklatsch is a German word for coffee and conversation (or gossip) first used in 1888.  Later the ‘s’ was dropped from the word as it became americanized.

I date this tray to late 50’s or early 60’s.  I remember our kitchen of that time period had a black, red and white linoleum floor and my mother had sewn curtains that had the same colours in a diamond pattern.  I still have the curtains tucked away somewhere.

This will be for sale at my booth in the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $20
