A very fine example of pewter tray 0231 designed by Archibald Knox for Liberty & Co.
This tray does not have the usual Knox motifs near the handles but has an intriguing engraving in the centre which reads:
"To my friend
F Stanford Elkington
It is then signed "Cadogan."
On researching the two men it was found that "Cadogan" was Gerald Cadogan, 6th Earl Cadogan CBE, who was, amongst things, Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel in the service of the Suffolk Volunteer Regiment.
Frederick Stanford Elkington was born in Suffolk, was also a member of the same regiment and became temporary Major and County Adjutant on 24th September 1917.
