13 Piece Wood & Hughes Gilt Coin Silver Dessert Set with Case
A truly stunning 13 piece, Wood & Hughes, partial gilt coin silver dessert set, which comes in its original antique fitted case. The Wood & Hughes set is from New York and dates to the 1860s. all pieces are in great condition, marked by the silver maker: W & H. The centerpiece of the set, or pie server, has a beautiful ornate engraving of an abstracted organic leaf-like pattern. Another special thing about this set is the engine-turned texture featured on the circle finial on both the spoons and server. The details on this set are impeccable. The pie server measures 101/2 inches long and weighs 13.85 troy ounces. The service comprises of 13 pieces in total- 1 pie server and 12 dessert spoons. The set was originally from the Collection of Dr. and Mrs. Harold Ecklund, Des Moines, Iowa. This silver dessert set is a wonderful gift, which is in great condition for its age. Its original fitted case (measuring 13 1/2 by 12 inches) has a blue satin and velvet interior, which has some wear but still holds and looks quite elegant. The outside of the case has some more noticeable wear. There are two small latches at either side of the case, one of the two latches remains in perfect working condition and holds the case closed tightly. There is some minor rubbing in the gilt bowls, barely noticeable, but indicates the set has been lightly used before.
Wood & Hughes became especially known for its sterling tableware and ornamental flatware with floral, and classical motifs, as can be seen on the pie server. Wood & Hughes emerged on the silver scene back in 1845 after Jacob Wood and Jasper H. Hughes broke away from the original parent company, Gale, Wood & Hughes. A great addition to a silver collection. Makes wonderful gift, especially on birthdays or holidays, when desserts are in order!
