Catalogue Note

The arms are those of Craig, probably for James Craig (1787- ) or his brother John C. Craig (1802-40) of Philadelphia.  A six-piece tea set by Fletcher & Gardiner of the same date and engraved with the arms of Craig is in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and is illustrated in Donald L. Fennimore and Ann K. Wagner, Silversmiths to the Nation Thomas Fletcher & Sidney Gardiner: 1808-1842, 2007, pgs. 178-79.
