Oneida Community Flatware Lady Hamilton 27pc & Chest
Mid century Oneida Community 'Lady Hamilton' c1932 silverplate flatware with wooden silverware storage chest. Originally this chest would have held flatware service for 8. The set is incomplete; today there are just 27 pieces remaining. All are good quality pieces to use as replacements or to fill an existing Lady Hamilton set.
The flatware chest is an authentic 'Community' storage box with a single hinged lid and featuring a rouge tarnish resistant fabric interior. The original labels are still present ("Community...The Finest Silverplate" and "Anti-Tarnish Silverware Container"). Six different flatware types exist in this silver plated set; this set includes the following pieces:
• [4pc] Modern Knife (hollow) - 9½"
• [8pc] Dinner Grille Fork - 7½"
• [5pc] Soup Spoon - 7⅜"
• [1pc] Sugar Spoon - 6"
• [8pc] Teaspoon - 6¼"
• [1pc] Butter Knife - 7"
Dimensions: Box measures 15½" x 11" and stands 3¾" tall. Weighs approximately 7 pounds (box + silverware).
CONDITION: Chest is in good vintage condition with some scratches to the exterior. There is a small crack in the wood on the lid, nothing serious. Inside is very clean, tight and free of stains. Flatware has some gentle scuffs & scratches from ordinary usage. Monogram free. As with all of our vintage items, we tend not to clean or alter them in any way. This set has not yet been cleaned or polished and is being sold 'as found'.
