July 4 Appraisal Event find

A gentleman from Boston came to the appraisal event held on Wednesday, July 4th with this unique silver plate service set. The pieces were part of a collection inherited from the consignor’s grandparents and aunt from Manchester, New Hampshire. Upon their passing, they were discovered in their collective attics. The consignor eventually came to find that they were part of a family collection that had spawned over the course of over 100 years. Furniture and Decorations Specialist Elizabeth Dalton recognized the set to be American circa 1870s and noted the unique and impressive looking figures decorating the pieces. Dalton understood that this interesting design feature would most likely appeal to an auction audience and consigned the set with tray at an estimate of $300-400.
