The word salver is derived from the Spanish salva (testing food or drink for the presence of poison), the French salve ( meaning a tray used fror presenting articles to Royalty) and from Latin salvare meaning to save or preserve. When you put all that together, a salver is a beautiful silver tray without handles!
When thinking of buying a salver, a collector might find some difficulty in distinguishing between a salver and a waiter and the following might be of interest:
In general terms, a salver is a tray without handles,and if the diameter of the piece is under 7 inches (18 cm), it might alternatively be described as a waiter;
In the realms of antique silver, "salver" is the correct terminology whether referring to waiter or salver.
A silver salver had many different uses in Edwardian, Victorian or Georgian times. The butler might present the morning's letters or a visiting card on an antique silver salver . In the latter case the salver is more likely to have been a silver waiter . A larger silver salver would have been used for serving food or drink.
Silver salvers look magnificent on any sideboard in the dining room or as an antique silver ornament on any table in the house
