Description


The pieces of this exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver four piece tea and coffee service have a circular oval form onto a circular spreading foot.


The teapot, coffee pot, cream jug and sugar bowl are embellished with an impressive original hallmarked frieze depicting lions surrounded by fruiting vine decoration and Bacchanalian type masks bordered by cornucopia.


A bright cut engraved crest of a falcon with wings displayed above a mural coronet is featured to one side of each piece.


The crest is surmounted by the motto 'Laboure et Amore' translated to mean 'Work and Love'.


The teapot and coffee pot are fitted with hallmarked domed hinged covers surmounted by detachable chased leaf decorated sterling silver baluster shaped finials.


The coffee pot, teapot and cream jug have fine sterling silver chased laurel leaf decorated handles.


The cream jug and sugar bowl have subtle gilded interiors.


The unusual quaich style sugar bowl is fitted with impressive shaped pierced, scroll and chased leaf and bud decorated handles.

Condition


This antique four piece tea and coffee service is a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The frieze decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved crest is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each piece and part hallmarks struck to the covers and handles are very clear.


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