Now you can own a unique piece of ship's silver, courtesy of Nelson and Nelson.
This sterling silver and gold-crested champagne goblet bears the coat of arms of the U.S. Navy Department and the coat of arms for San Francisco. The goblet was probably manufactured as part of the silver service made for the USS San Francisco, a New Orleans-class heavy cruiser which was launched in 1933. The USS San Francisco was docked in Pearl Harbor on the fateful day of December 7th, 1941. It escaped unscathed and continued to serve until it was decommissioned in 1959. This heavy gauge goblet is in the elegant, sinuous 1930s style and was made by Shreve and Company of San Francisco. For more information on this collector's piece, click here.
