$180.00 Price for the set of six.

A matched set, these six, 5 3/4" long teaspoons have special attributes.

First, they are exceptionally fine, extra weight, 5.9 T. oz. the group, examples of Wood & Hughes' Moorish or similar, Renaissance Revival, "Venetian" pattern.

Second, they are anniversary presentation pieces, with mirror inscriptions front and back sides of the handles. The reverses read "HCA" in an elegant, feathered script "HCA" over "Nov. 3d, 1852." The obverses are identical save for a different year, "1877."

Lastly, and likely related to their histories as commemorative items, they are in essentially unused condition, retaining crisp detail, having well-shaped and flawless bowls, and exhibiting bright, even finishes on all six.

Marks are the Wood & Hughes' "WwH" emblem, "Sterling," and the name of the retailer, "L & J.F. Grant," Detroit, Michigan.
