Description


This magnificent antique Victorian Irish sterling silver four piece tea service consists of a spirit kettle, a teapot, a sugar bowl and a cream jug.


Each piece of this Victorian tea set has been crafted in the Louis style and is supported by four fine and impressive cast feet embellished with mask decorated sockets.


The surface of each piece is embellished with chased wild rose, scroll and leaf decoration incorporating a scroll decorated cartouche to either side.


The cartouche to one side displays a bright cut engraved crest featuring a turtle dove holding an olive branch in its beak; the other remains vacant.


The teapot and spirit kettle are fitted with hinged hallmarked covers embellished with wild rose and leaf decoration.


The covers retain the original hallmarked sterling silver wild rose style finials.


The shaped rim of each cover, in addition to the upper rim of the sugar bowl and cream jug, are encircled with an applied scroll and leaf decorated border.


The teapot and spirit kettle feature exceptional cast sterling silver spouts embellished with chased scroll and leaf decoration.


The spout to the cream jug is ornamented with an impressive cast sterling silver mask to the underside, in the Louis style.


Each piece is fitted with an opposing scroll handle ornamented with impressive chased scrolling leaf ornamentation to the thumbpiece and terminals.


The impressive Irish sterling silver spirit kettle detaches from the original hallmarked stand which incorporates an electroplated silver spirit burner in keeping with style, though not guaranteed as original.


This fine antique four piece tea service is accompanied by a fine and impressive pair of associated Irish sterling silver sugar tongs made by John Smith in 1891.


These impressive sugar tongs are embellished with chased wild rose and leaf decoration incorporating a vacant circular cartouche across the centre of the bridge.


Date: 1898

Condition


This antique Victorian tea set is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks are struck to the underside of the teapot, spirit kettle, cream jug and sugar bowl and the interior surface of the sugar tongs.

Part hallmarks are struck to the covers, finials and the rim of the kettle stand.

The majority of the hallmarks are very clear however, those struck to the teapot and sugar bowl are slightly rubbed, but remain legible.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of examples of Irish teaware.
