Sterling Silver at Julia's

at the 1878 Exhibition Universelle in Paris, winning Grand Prize and world-wide acclaim.

The exquisite set being offered was the property of Mary Jane Sexton Morgan (1823- 1885), a noted collector of finery whose husband was a railroad and iron magnate and cousin of J.P. Morgan. Upon her passing, Mrs. Morgan's extensive collection was auctioned by Mr. Thomas Kirby of the American Art Galleries of New York City in 1886 in a landmark sale encompassing ten days and totaling over $1.2 Million, a remarkable sum for the time. Having rare items to bring to market with such wonderful provenance is a true pleasure, and we look forward to the June sale.
