Condition


This antique Victorian Tea Service is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

There are natural fire marks to the surface of the teapot and some minor dings to the ball feet of the cream jug, in keeping with age; these do not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the set.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece and the interior of the teapot cover are all very clear; the maker’s marks show signs of wear, in keeping with age, but remain legible.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine Victorian silver tea service.
