Relish trays are so useful. It's gotten so you rarely see them in stores any more, or if you do they are plastic and kind of icky. The one shown here is from Viking Glass, the company formed when New Martinsville Glass reorganized about 1950. I like it for its sleek contemporary style. It is plain, without an etch, so the pretty scallops on the ground base rim and top provide the style pizazz. It goes well with today's understated dinnerware yet would also work with some decorated dinner sets. We have several relish trays in our store Cat Lady Kate's Elegant and Depression Glass. They make great gifts for weddings, showers or just because.Today we had dinner with my brother and sister in law who served several salads - macaroni, potato and more macaroni - plus lettuce. This relish tray would have been perfect for offering samplings of salads. You would put the most popular salad (potato in her case since she makes it yummy) in the big section and the macaroni accent salads in the smaller sections. Or you could be traditional and use this divided tray for carrots, celery sticks and olives. To be on trend replace the olives with low fat dip.
