Sterling Silversmith's Guild -1926A
Such a lucky lady, learning now what will be so useful in her future life: Hold out for sterling; don't go for electroplated silver on base metal. This is an ad for an industry group raising awareness of the quality issue, and they've hired a very competent artist, working in the style of the day, to make their point. From the August, 1926 issue of HOUSE AND GARDEN magazine.
