These are two different 1950 magazine advertisements for Wallace Sterling Silver flatware by Wallace Silversmiths, Wallingford, Conn.
The first picture ad shows patterns from top-to-bottom - Romance of the Sea, Rose Point, Stradivari, Grand Colonial, Sir Christopher, and Grande Baroque. The second picture ad shows the same patterns excluding Romance of the Sea. Both ads measure 9 3/4" by 12 3/4". Wallace Silversmiths traces its beginnings back to Robert Wallace, who made the first nickel spoon in America in 1835. Today, Wallace Silversmiths is now part of the Lifetime Brands family, who also manufacture Towle Silversmiths, Tuttle, International Silver, and produce the Gorham and Kirk Stieff sterling flatware patterns under license.
