I have this pretty Everlast aluminum tidbit tray up on etsy! Click my post title to see the listing. I don't collect aluminum ware. However, I have two pieces from my Mother that I'm keeping. She and my Father got them for engagement gifts in the late 1930's when it was all the rage!
Aluminum ware has gotten such short shrift. It's pretty, functional, relatively easy to keep clean and it helps keep hot food hot and cold food cold. At sales I often see pieces thrown around like old hubcaps. Okay some of them may look like hubcaps, but most don't! There are lovely pieces by Kent, Everlast, Alcoa, Buenilum, August, etc. It's likely your Mother or Grandmother had a piece or two! Smoochies!
