Description


The pieces of this fine antique sterling silver tea service have a circular compressed form on to a circular spreading foot.


The body of each piece is embellished with chased flower and scroll decoration incorporation a shaped vacant cartouche to one side.


The body of the teapot is further embellished to one side with an embossed motif depicting three figures afloat in a small craft.


The impressive teapot spout, foot and hinged domed cover are ornamented with chased flower and scrolling leaf decoration.


The cover is surmounted with a silver flower and leaf finial.


The teapot is fitted with a plain carved ivory handle.


The cream jug and sugar bowl have applied fruiting vine decorated rims and chased floral decorated S scroll handles.


Although the cream jug and sugar bowl are not identical to the teapot, the items were purchased from a family who had them for many years, and as the pieces are so similar, it is appropriate to offer them as a composite tea service.


The teapot was made by Joseph Craddock and William Ker Reid, London, 1820.


The cream jug and sugar bowl were made by Joseph Briggs, London, 1824.

Condition


The pieces of this composite antique tea service are an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

There is minor crazing to the teapot handle, and an insignificant chip to the base, in keeping with age.

There is a strengthening pin to the underside of the handle which is tight and secure.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the teapot are very clear.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the cream jug and sugar bowl are rubbed but legible.

Part hallmarks struck to the finial and interior of the teapot cover are all very clear.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these items.
