Frank and Holton Co. (Manufacturer)
If you look at the plaque on the top of the case it was signed by Frank and Holton Company of Elkhart Wisconsin. If you are a musician that name may sound familiar. They are important manufacturers of quality instruments. I guess they also made picnic sets as well. The set contains a nice collection of items... 6 knifes, 6 forks, salt and pepper shakers, 6 tea cups, 6 coffee cups, 6 bowls, 6 plates, 4 milk glass jars with screw on lids an 2 tin boxes. All the places, bowls and cups are white and blue rimed backed-on enamel. The case closes with two locks and has leather handles. I had this item for years and always kept it in the trunk of my antique car.
