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.

The beautiful ship clock the city of Detroit will present to the scout cruiser which bears its name has been exhibited for a few days at the city hall. The committee which selected the design was composed of Percy Loud of Wright, Kay & Co., jewelers; Albert Kahn, architect; Richard T. Broadhead, commander U. S. Navy Reserve force, and Joseph S. Stringham. The clock stands seven feet high and is built of inlaid walnut and bronze. The case was designed by Albert Kahn and constructed by J. & P. Sloan Co., New York. The works, electrically controlled, with six bronze secondary clocks to be located in various parts of vantage about the ship are controlled by the master clock. The works are full jeweled. The cruiser is now on a short Atlantic trip and plans are under way for presentation of the clock next month when the ship returns to Boston.
