Silver breakfast sets were a popular christening gift during the early years of this century, and New York's Tiffany and Company catered heavily to this demand. This silver set was presented to Eugene Walker by his godfather, Hoffman Nickerson. Mr. Walker was born in New York City in 1915 to John B. Walker and Mai Elmendorf Hackstaff.
