This extraordinary sterling silver plateau is the perfect centerpiece for any dining room table. Designed in a graceful Art Nouveau style, the mirrored plateau is elegantly adorned by a flourish of beautifully chased grape vines that encircle its crown and body. The piece is a rarity for its maker, J.F. Fradley and Co., an American manufacturer that specialized in stylish Art Nouveau silver pieces such as hand mirrors, napkin holders, and tea strainers. This silver plateau is among the largest and best pieces ever made by these celebrated silversmiths.

The plateau is beautifully hand engraved with the message 'To Mr. and Mrs. Sereno E. Payne from Mr. Payne's Colleagues on the Ways and Means Committee 55th Congress of U.S. April 23, 1898'. An important historical figure on the American political scene, Sereno E. Payne was a United States Representative from New York and the first House Majority Leader. During his tenure, he served as chairman of the Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, and, finally, as majority leader. Once owned by a prominent American political leader and crafted by a renowned American silver firm, this remarkable plateau is a true treasure of American silver.

Stamped with the cross emblem of J.F. Fradley & Co.
