Wright, Kay & Co. have had on exhibition in their show window, since last Friday, the silver service for the battleship Michigan. This service, which was made by Tiffany & Co., consists of 63 pieces. The set is unique, in that not only the officers and the rank and file of the sailors are recognized in the pieces comprising the service, some of the articles being for the wardroom table, while a tobacco set is for the enlisted men. The decorations consist of pine cones and sheaves of wheat, as symbolic of the products of the State. The old cruiser Michigan, now re-named the Wolverine, is pictured in the principal engraving upon the punch bowl of the set.
