This fine antique George IV Scottish sterling silver three piece tea service consists of a teapot, cream jug and sugar bowl.


The pieces of this service have a circular rounded form onto a circular domed spreading foot.


The body of each piece is ornamented with a fine and impressive broad band of chased grape vine and foliate decoration to the upper portion.

The shoulders of each item are encircled with a band of two tiered leaf designs above an impressive egg and tongue decorated border.


The teapot is fitted with a flush hinged hallmarked cover ornamented with further impressive chased leaf decoration to the domed portion; the flush hinge indicates the fine quality of this service.


The cover is surmounted by an exceptional, large sterling silver bud and leaf decorated finial.
