Oral tradition relates that this coffee set was acquired from the silversmith by a vice president of Union Stock Yard Company for his daughter; it was sold at a Chicago auction house about 1984. Victorian Chicago, an antiques dealer, acquired the set and sold it to ARK Antiques. It was purchased from ARK Antiques, New Haven, Connecticut, in 1987.
