Jeeves and Wooster: Butlers Tray

Bertram Wooster likes his cup of tea- in the afternoon he favors Earl Grey tea.  In the Wooster residence tea is usually served by Jeeves from a silver tea pot and bone china cups.

Tea is served at Bertie Wooster's Flat in a scene from the TV series  Jeeves and Wooster

In the above scene from the Jeeves and Wooster TV series tea is being served by Jeeves, played by Stephen Fry,  on a wooden butler's tray. On top of the tray is what appears to be a Madeira style embroidered linen placemat.

Below is a solid mahogany butlers tray with brass side rails that looks like the one used on the show.
