Beautiful three layered set by Tiemann of New York. The address is on a label in the set and is at 67 Chatham St. NY. This was Tiemann's address from 1863/64 until 1871. The style of the instruments, shape of the knife blades and presence of the brass bands on the case point to the earliest date for this address. This set was most likely produced during the civil war for civilian or state militia use. The delicate downward curved shape of the knives is typical of 1860 sets by Tiemann. All instruments are original to the set which came from a family in the Northeast. Circa 1864 (Civil War).
