The story of the tray is that Elzas was in that time still German territory and the French people wanted this part of their land back. After the war this part became once again French. On the tray there is a French soldier fighting, holding grenades and around him grenades are exploding. In the corners there is barbed wire pictured in the art nouveau style.
