Anna Pingree (Wheatland) Phillips inherited her family's rose medallion dinner service upon her father's death in 1892. The service was likely custom painted for the Wheatland family c. 1870. The medallion contains the initials "SGW" and pictures sections that alternate between scenes of people and floral designs. Anna and Stephen Willard used this service on special occasions and used both their Canton and Limoges services for everyday meals and entertaining at the Phillips House in Salem, Massachusetts.
