Lenox and Sterling from Mt. Sterling, Kentucky

This charming set of silver came from an estate in Mount Sterling, Kentucky.
- Six tiny demitasse cups of Lenox china, in sterling holders.
- The set was displayed in a satin case lined with deep green velvet, and was sold at the turn of the century in fine department stores like Bailey, Banks & Biddle.

It now resides with a collector in Japan. (I just visited a friend in Vermont and found a set of them in her etagere!)
