    I've been waiting to share this set, I have had it for several months. The set is in very good condition, with on a few tiny nicks. No major scratches or dents. The pieces are monogrammed with an "S". Very fitting, my daughter's name begins with an S. The set weighs over 9 pounds, each piece marked:

    Hand Chased
    Sterling by
    Frank M. Whiting & Company
    707

    I am not sure exactly when this was made....I would say sometime between 1900-1940??? Here is some more about the company:

      Superb coffee and tea set, BHock, particularly since you have all five pieces.

      Here is a very similar set --- with the tray, also numbered 707 --- that sold at Sotheby's in 2010 and they date it "early 20th century." Amusing note: the photographer placed the sugar bowl lid on top of the waste bowl in error.

      http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/2010/important-americana-n08608/lot.335.html

      Don't be wow'd by the sale price since the silver value alone for 8689 grams WITH THE TRAY in 2010, that averaged approximately $20.00 per troy ounce, was around $5,200.00.

      solver, thank you! Looks like the set is the same, mine without the tray of course. I have to find the tray, or one that complements the set. I love the work on this set, I am happy with it. Thanks again!
