Provenance: Private Baltimore Collection

Note: "Charles Magarge (1804-1883) was a successful businessman and ultimately a paper mangnate of the Wissahickon Valley of Philadelphia his Germantown mansion still stands today and is used as the Settle Music School. This set descended through a prominent Boston family. while Magareg was very successful at a young age (he entered the business world at the age of 13). We believe there is a possibility that the service was originally owned by the parents of Magarge's first wife. Ann Hicks, hence the initials "F.W.H"."
From Spencer Marks
