Impressive Thirty-Two-Piece Sterling Silver Dinner Service

1927-1929, by William B. Durgin Co., Concord, New Hampshire and Graff, Washbourne & Dunn, New York, New York, for Brand-Chatillon, New York City, New York, including sixteen service plates, dia. 10-3/4", and sixteen bread and butter plates, dia. 7", each with a rim decorated with threaded panels engraved with rocaille swags and applied reed-and-acanthus edge, no monograms.
466.58 total t. oz.

Provenance: New Orleans Auction Galleries, October 11, 201, lot 990.

Notes: En suite with the following lot.
Condition
In overall good condition. Fine scattered surface scuffs consistent with age, slightly more visible on the smaller plates, and with minor pinpoint dings, but otherwise in very fine condition. Twenty-eight pieces marked (on the underside) with the retailer's stamp "Brand-Chatillon Co.", "Sterling" and the Durgin "D in an oval" trademark, with the pattern number "60-1" on the small plates and "6-1" on the large. These additionally marked with the Durgin/Gorham date marks, thus: five large plates, 1927 (airplane); twelve small and eight large plates, 1928 (wheat sheaf); three large plates, 1929 (zeppelin). Note that the remaining four small plates are not by Durgin but rather have the trademark of Graff, Washbourne & Dunn of New York. These are, however, of an identical design as the rest, with negligible difference in the execution of the details, and likewise marked with the Brand-Chatillon retailer's stamp. Very likely Brand-Chatillon - for whom this was an exclusive pattern - commissioned it from both suppliers. A rare, large and hefty set.
