Beautifully made, marked with Shiebler's winged S mark and "sterling, " also inscribed on the bottom, Henry Morgan Hobart March 22nd 1884, Michael Morgan Gleason June 1st 1939.Found at a southern California estate with movie industry connections, not sure if this belonged to writer/producer Michael Gleason....

A special piece for the serious collector. A few very minor bends and dings, overall very nice with some tarnish in design.
