18th Century tray, Delft?

Post by Vantlicht »

Hi, I bought this nice silver tray from the 18th century as far as I know. There stood in the description that it could be Delft. If I look to Delft than there were two silversmiths with IT. Johannes van Tonningen (1715-1766) and Johannes Tiddens (1718-1739). Could this be correct? Yearletter H from: 1737 or 1761?

Would be nice if somebody could confirm it or put me on another path...

Thanks in advance!
