Description: These trays are quite rare and there are similarities and differences between the 6 that are pictured. First, the similarities are: all have the Canton pattern in the same place, all have indented corners (see 3rd & 4th pics), all have raised sides (tray heights range from 5/8″ to 1″), all have unglazed bottoms, and all have orange peel surfaces.  The differences are: 3 of the 6 have tiny valleys in the top rim and one of these (see 4th pic) has blue painted in the valley, the smallest tray is considerably thinner and more delicate than the others, and all but one tray have leaves (see 5th pic) on the 4 outside edges. They range in size from 6 3/4″ long to 10 1/2″.
