Comments:Another one of the classic trays featured in the 1901 Meek and Beach Coshocton Tray Catalog. NABA had an excellent article in their Spring 1998 magazine featuring the stock trays in this catalog. It is an invaluable resource on many trays from the early 1900's. I would say you see this stock tray the most from Claussen. One interesting thing is the tray states "Old Friends" on it, however in the 1901 Catalog is says "Good Friends" below the tray. I could use one in a little nicer condition, but until then this one is pretty nice.
