Hi All,
I'm writing on behalf of a friend who is in possession of a 12-person silverware set with accessories from The Cocoanut Grove, Boston, Massachusetts.

The Cocoanut Grove was Boston's premier nightclub during the post-Prohibition 1930s and 1940s. On November 28, 1942, this club was the scene of one of the deadliest nightclub fires in history, killing 492 people and injuring hundreds more. The enormity of the tragedy shocked the nation and briefly replaced the events of World War II in newspaper headlines. It led to a reform of safety standards and codes across the country, as well as major changes in the treatment and rehabilitation of burn victims.

I'm trying to figure out a ballpark figure of the worth, and I'm also trying to figure out how to find a buyer. Any help would be much appreciated. Pics attached. Thank you.
