I Think The Maker Is Actually Henri Smets & Eugene Fontenay Of Paris. Tray Is Also Engraved “Tiffany & Co France Sterling”. Often Retailers Had Certain Items Made For Them By Different Silversmiths, And Fontenay Was Known To Have Made Jewelry That Was Retailed By Tiffany. Great Quality & Style Tray Centered With A Hand Engraved Monogram EMC. There Are A Couple Of Minor Dings On The Tray, But Barely Noticeable.
