4 Place Settings 1960s President Pattern
With Silver Serving Pieces
Up for sale a very rare offering; 4 Pan Am President Place settings from the 1960s.  Pan Am's First Class Service was branded "The President" after WWII because during the war Franklin Roosevelt had flown on Pan Am when traveling to Africa to meet Winston Churchill & Joseph Stalin.  The 1960s President emblem is an eagle surrounded by 13 stars (3 above and 10 below) and was featured on plates, glasses, linen & menus.  This pattern was in use from the early 1960s to the early 1970s.
Please note that the measurements given below are approximate and not exact..
Each of the 4 place setting includes; 1 dinner plate (9 in. Diameter), 1 luncheon plate (8 in. D), 1 salad / dessert plate (7 in. D), 1 bread plate (6 in. D), 1 fruit bowls (4 in. D - 1 in tall), 1 coffee cup (3 in. D - 2 3/8 in. tall), 1 saucer/bowl liner (5 in. D), 1 demitasse cup (2 in. D - 2 in. tall) for a total of 36 pieces of porcelain.  The plates were produced by Noritake of Japan and the Noritake logo appears on the back / bottom of each piece of porcelain.  All porcelain pieces are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.  See close up picture (and logo) below. 
Each place setting includes the following flatware (see picture below) 2 forks of the same size (1 appetizer / 1 dinner), 1 small appetizer / salad knife, 1 large dinner knife, 1 soup spoon, 1 teaspoon, 1 demitasse spoon.  The flatware is silver plate and was produced for Pan Am by the International Silver Company.  On the front of the flatware a Pan Am globe logo appears at the bottom of each piece and can be seen in the below photographs.  On the back of the forks & spoons is stamped "International Silver Co" & "PAA Exclusive."  The flatware is in good / usable condition but does show some scratches and minor silver rub off on a few pieces.
As a bonus (thought not seen in the pictures) 4 additional small knives (for bread & butter), 4 forks & 4 teaspoons (for dessert) are included, for a total of 40 pieces of flatware. 
Also included in this lot are very rare President glasses.  Each place setting includes 1 wine glass (5 1/8 in. tall), 1 cordial glass (4 in. tall) and 1 "rock" cocktail glass (3 in D - 3 in. tall).  All glasses are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks and  feature the same eagle emblem as the plates.  As a special bonus two more (each) of the wine & rock glasses are included with this auction for a total of 16 glasses.
This lot also includes the following silver plate serving pieces;
1 silver plate coffee pot.  The pot measures 9 inches tall with a diameter of 4 inches at the base and 3 5/8 inch diameter under the lid.  The pot is made by the International Silver Company and the bottom stamp indicates that it holds 48 ounces.  The "68" that appears in the box on the bottom stamp indicates that the pot was made in 1968.  I believe the other digits are Pan Am catering codes.  The pot has scratches on the side and silver plate is warn away in some spots.  The silver plate is chipped at the top of the pot just under the lid in the front by the spout.  The lid is a little loose.  In spite of its imperfections this pot is a great and elegant piece   The inside of the pot is in very good condition and could be used to serve liquids immediately.  See the picture for more detail.
1 silver plate sugar bowl standing 2 inches tall and 3 5/8 inches diameter at the top.  The piece is made by the International Silver Company.  The back stamp indicates that it holds 8 ounces and was made in 1969.  There are some scratches & dings and some silver rub off at the brim.  Still, this piece is in good / useable condition.  Please see picture for detail.
1 silver plate creamer standing 2 inches tall and 3 5/8 inches diameter at the top.  The piece was also made by the International Silver Company and the back stamp indicates that it holds 8 ounces and was made in 1969.  Though there are some scratches and dings (on the bottom) the silver on this piece is in pretty good condition - with some rub off on the bottom of the handle.  This piece is in good usable condition.  Please see the picture for detail.
1 nickel silver martini / water pitcher with a 3 inch diameter at the neck and standing 9 inches tall at the top of the spout.  The pitcher is made by the Grand Silver Company and stamped on the bottom "PAA" and the trademark "Wear-Brite."  The silver plate has worn away on the inside of the pitcher and it should not be used to serve liquids until re-plated.  See the picture below for more detail of the item.
1 nickel silver serving bowl 8 inches diameter at the top and 4 inches tall.  The bowl holds 10 cups of liquid to the brim.  The bowl was used by crew to serve caviar, soup, ice cream & other desserts.  The bowl has some nicks & staining but is in pretty good shape.  It is stamped on the bottom with the wear-brite trade mark & "Property of Pan Am." See picture below for more detail.  
Though it is possible to occasionally find individual pieces of the President pattern on E-bay at lower prices what I am selling is the convenience of complete settings and related serving pieces.  To find such a complete collection of Pan Am President items would take years on E-bay.  
PLEASE NOTE:  The President place setting also included a larger wine glass (6 inches tall), a cereal bowl (5 in. D - 1 in. tall), a larger saucer (6 in. D) and a sake/egg cup (1 in. D - 1 in. tall).  Additionally, a personal size coffee pot, tea pot, sugar bowl & creamer all porcelain with the President logo were produced.  There were also other silver serving pieces from this era.  THESE ITEMS ARE NOT (REPEAT NOT) INCLUDED IN THIS LOT.
I have tried to describe honestly the quality of all pieces offered in this lot.  I will not refund individual pieces of the lot.  Should you not be satisfied with the overall lot I will offer a full refund as long as you are willing to pay the postage to return the lot to me.  I will pay the insurance cost for the return shipping.  Refund request must be made within 14 days of outbound shipping.
Shipping cost to be determined by destination.  There will be no "handling charge."   The lot has been very carefully packed in 5 boxes with lots of peanuts and bubble wrap.  A shipping choice will be provided.  I am also willing to ship internationally.  Payment will be via Paypal only.

1960s Clipper Club Coffee Cup & Saucer
This 1960s Pan Am coffee cup & saucer was used around the world at Pan Am's private airport lounges know as Clipper Clubs.  Unlike today where customers can pay to join airline lounges in the 1960s the Clipper Clubs were membership by invitation only.  This cup & saucer was produced by Noritake of Japan with "Noritake" markings on the bottom of both the cup & saucer.  There are no Pan Am marking on either piece. The cup is 2 1/4 inches tall with a diameter of  3 1/4 inches at the top of the cup.  The saucer has a diamter of 6 inches. 

Both the cup & saucer have gold bands and some of the gold has worn off over the years on all pieces available for sale.  The wear is more on the cups than the saucers.  I would estimate that on average the gold reduction on the cups is 20% and the gold reduction on the saucers is 15%.  An example of the wear on the cup can be seen in the photo on the left.  The sets are being sold "as is." reduced from $35 to $20.

1970s - 1980s First Class
Silver Plate Serving Bowl
The silver bowl on the left was used as part of Pan Am's international First Class service.  The bowl was used throughout the multiple course meal service.  It would first appear on the cart used to set each customer's tray table holding flatware rolled  up in  linen napkins.  The bowl would then appear with iced caviar and condiments on the appetizer cart.  Next, the bowl would appear holding fruit during the fruit & cheese course and finally would appear on the dessert cart with either ice cream or mousse.  The bowl stands 4 inches tall and has a diameter of 8 1/4 inches at the top.  The bowl was manufactured by the Grand Silver Company as part of their "wearbrite" line.  

This particular bowl is in pretty good shape for all the wear and tear of flying around the world many times.  I have included multiple photos showing where the silver plate has worn off.  You can also see where there are two slight dents in the bowl from the photo looking down at the interior of the bowl.  The bowl also is slightly lop sided which can be seen in top right photos where the bowl is leaning slightly to the right.  Please contact me with any questions on this item at pa115@aol.com

*VERY RARE*
1983 Twenty Fifth Anniversary of Jet Service - Cup & Saucer
Price: $125 Shipping cost based on destination
This very rare cup & saucer were produced in 1983 by the Johann Haviland company in Bavaria, Germany for the 25th Anniversary of Pan Am's first jet service between New York & Paris.

The design on both the cup & saucer mimic the Rosenthal "Script" pattern in use on Pan Am's first jet flights.  Pan Am had contacted Rosenthal to reproduce the original china for a special New York - Paris re-enactment flight.  As Rosenthal was unwilling to produce the china another company was used.  The cup is 2 3/8 inches tall with a diameter of 3 inches at the top.  The saucer has a diameter of 5 inches.  Both pieces are slightly smaller than the original Rosenthal pieces (which can be seen on the "1946-60" Catering" page on this site.  Though both pieces have no chips or cracks there is some minor wear on the black line "Script" design.  Overall the set is in very good condition.

Only a few hundred pieces of this anniversary china was produced and used for a single round trip between New York & Paris making this cup & saucer set very, very rare.
