This tray is really pretty and a very useful size. I particularly like the trees and hens around the rim: good detail and such rich colours. It's not heavy. The handles and rim are rigid and solid, but the round base is made of a thinner metal than expected, making it slightly bendy with a drum-like noise when the first item is placed in the middle of it! But I think it'll be quite strong and firm enough for a tea tray and am very glad I bought it.
