The Sugar and Cream Tray is most often seen as one piece of a three-piece set, with either the Individual Cream & Sugar – or the Tea Cream & Sugar. The Tray is the same for both sets. When these sets were being produced, you could buy the three pieces as one set, or you could buy any of the three items (Sugar, Cream, and/or Tray) individually.
The Sugar and Cream Tray was produced from 1938 – 1982. It is about 8″ in length when measured from handle to handle. The Tray portion is about 6¾” in length and approximately 4″ wide. The sides of the Tray come up about ¼ of an inch, ensuring that the Sugar and Cream will sit securely in place.
While this particular tray is obviously most used when serving Cream and Sugar, it can also be used with other pieces in the American line. For example, it holds Salt & Pepper Shakers beautifully. It is also the official tray that is used in the 3 Pc. Jam Pot Set. It can even be used for Mini Cupcakes, and individual appetizers or salads.
