SOLD - Sterling Silver Four Piece Tea Service – Antique George VI


This impressive large antique George VI sterling silver four piece tea and coffee set / service consists of a coffee pot, teapot, cream jug and sugar bowl.

Each piece of this fine set has a rounded melon style form to a circular shaped spreading foot.

The upper portion of each piece is ornamented with interlacing scrolling floral and leaf bright cut engraved decoration, accented with stylised double shell motifs.

To one side of the body of each piece is an impressive bright cut engraved coat of arms, of Morpeth Borough, depicting barry of ten and a tower triple-turreted a bordure charged with eight martlets above the motto 'inter sylvas et flumina habitans’ - Living among woods and streams.

Both the coffee pot and teapot are fitted with hinged hallmarked covers encircled with bright cut engraved stylised scroll and leaf motifs.

The coffee pot and teapot covers are surmounted with impressive original carved ivory and sterling silver topped urn style finials.

The teapot and coffee pot retain the original fine and impressive carved ivory handles featuring a scrolling thumbpiece.

The cream jug and sugar bowl are fitted with sterling silver C scroll handles, ornamented with scroll and stylised waterleaf decoration.

This fine large sterling silver service is displayed on a tray for illustrative purposes only - the tray (W4686) may be purchased separately from the AC Silver inventory.

Although this antique teapot displays the Birmingham Assay Office hallmarks, it was made by the provincial Newcastle silversmith Reid & Sons (The Newcastle Assay Office closed in 1884).

Date: 1940


This antique tea and coffee service is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The bright cut engraved decoration to each piece is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover of the teapot and coffee pot are all very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this set of antique teaware.
