Description


This fine antique Edward VIII sterling silver café au lait service / set consists of a coffee pot, hot milk jug, sugar bowl and matching tray.


The pieces of this coffee service have a circular rounded plain form onto a circular stepped foot in the Art Deco style.


The body of each piece is plain and unembellished apart from subtle incurved decoration to the upper portion.


The coffee pot and milk jug are fitted with hallmarked hinged covers, retaining the original carved ivory and silver topped finials.


The covers are ornamented with subtle incurved decoration, similar in style and position to that of the body.


The milk jug and coffee pot retain the original angular Art Deco style ivory handles.


The coffee pot is fitted with a swan necked spout which is also embellished with the incurved design; the milk jug has a plain angular spout.


The tray has a plain rectangular cut cornered form with a raised border and plain applied moulded rim.


The tray retains the original rounded hexagonal carved ivory handles.


Date: 1936

Condition


All the pieces of this antique coffee set are a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

The service has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.

The interiors of each piece have been cleaned and are ready for use.

There is crazing to the ivory handles, in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece, including the tray and part hallmarks to the covers of the milk jug and coffee pot are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these impressive examples of antique silverware.
