SILVER, ESTATE > FLATWARE > PAGE 2
Hallmark: Sterling, Roehm & Chittenden
Size: Varies ~ 6 & 1/4 to 9 inchesQuantity: 1 Set = 5 pcs Sterling + Box & Note
Handles are lightly monogrammed; Esther.
All of the pieces in this set are in exceptionally fine estate condition. We see
no dings or dents and the parcel gilt remains very bright and shiny, with just a
hint of wear to spoon backs where they rest in the satin lined box. Handles retain
original shape and pattern design remains quite crisp and defined.
The blue satin interior lining does show some scuffs around the serving holders,
as well as a few marks and some dust. Retailers name is marked in gold lettering
inside lid; Roehm & Chittenden ~ Detroit.
The original box appears to have a leather covered exterior and there are some scuffs
and scratches, but otherwise the box is in sound condition; hinges and latch work
A very old handwritten note was found enclosed in the box and will be included. It
indicates that this set was a wedding gift for Esther Chase Smith, with a date of
October 24, 1871; possibly a date of birth?
A 125 year old Victorian serving set, in exceptionally fine condition, complete with
original presentation box...truely a wonderful, rare find.
