This service was made at time of the marriage of Louise Roman Humichouse (1883-1934) to John Ridgely, Jr. (1882-1959) in 1907. The elegant six–piece set, comprised of a teapot, coffee pot, hot water pot on stand, waste bowl, sugar bowl, and cream pitcher, reflects the designs of Baltimore silver of a century earlier. Following family tradition, the Ridgely stag’s head crest is engraved on the side of each piece.
