Salvers & Platters

Wholesale platters and salvers are large shallow dishes used predominantly in the serving of food. These serving dishes are usually produced without the handles that are often seen on trays and other serving accessories. Businesses working in catering or the hospitality industry can use to contact salver and platter suppliers. Wholesale platters and salvers are sometimes purely functional, but they may also be highly decorative, made from polished metals such as silver. Indeed, some salvers are intended for purely decorative or celebratory purposes, such as the Venus Rosewater dish, an 18.75 inch partly gilded silver salver awarded to the winner of the Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Championship. The origin of the word salver is believed to come from the Spanish salva, which was a dish traditionally used to hold the food sampled by the King's taster to ensure that it was not poisoned. The word derives from the Latin salvare meaning to save.

A salver or platter is an elegant and convenient way to serve food at any occasion where a large selection of smaller items is to be served. They are useful in particular for the serving of canapés or other finger foods. A fine silver salver can show that extra touch of class and luxury at a formal reception or a wedding. Equally a platter can be used at any informal occasion, for serving items as mundane as bread or as exotic as tropical fruit. The use of a salver or platter for the serving of food is something that can be seen time and again, from the casual occasion to the formal reception. As such, good quality examples of these items are always likely to be in demand and can be located with the help of traders registered at
