This is a set of Solid Silver flatware consisting of 12 place settings: dinner knife, dinner fork, salad fork, bread & butter spreader, tea spoon. There are 4 ice tea spoons, 2 large table spoons, 1 butter knife server, 1 sugar spoon, 1 pickle fork, 1 cake knife, and 1 cheese server. Also included in the original 5x12, International Silver Company manual that identifies each item. Presently it is stored in a safety deposit box, but I have included photos taken from the manual.
The set was purchase in the 1920's in Lincoln, Nebraska. The manual has a foil sicker inside with the name of the store, but it is difficult to read. It belonged to Fred B. and Sunbeam Thompson, who retired in Sprinfield, Missouri. Thompson was a college football coach, and coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks in the 1940's. The set has never been sold. I Inherited it from a family member in the 1980's.
