Nota de aplicación

Trays or platters, usually of circular or octagonal shape and made of various materials: wood panel upon which a scene or symbolism had been painted, ceramics having similar scenes or family crests, or metal. The trays were important symbolic gifts made on the occasion of a successful birth in late medieval and Early Modern Europe, particularly in Italy. Food, clothing, or other gifts were often presented stacked upon the tray.
