Promotional photo for The George Watts & Son wedding registry, c. 1950

This Acorn silverware set was purchased in 1949 from George Watts & Son in Milwaukee Wisconsin. The small store, which also housed a popular tea room, offered china, crystal and silverware from across Europe and the United States. Shoppers could peruse entire rooms dedicated to brands like Stueben and Baccarat and artist-arranged displays of silver and china. The original owner of this Acorn silverware received the set as part of her wedding registry and it has remained in the family ever since.
