Description


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver cafe au lait set consists of a coffee pot, hot milk/water jug, cream jug and sugar bowl, all crafted in the George I style.


The coffee pot, hot milk jug and cream jug have a plain circular baluster form and the sugar bowl has a plain circular rounded form, all onto a circular domed spreading foot.


The surface of each piece is plain and unembellished with applied moulded decoration to the rim.


The coffee pot and milk jug are fitted with the original hallmarked hinged covers surmounted with impressive cast sterling silver tiered finials.


The milk jug and coffee pot retain the original C scroll fibre handles with scrolling sterling silver lower terminals, in addition to large leaf motifs to the upper socket in junction with the body.


The cream jug is fitted with a sterling silver opposing scroll handle with a leaf decorated thumbpiece.


The coffee pot has an impressive swan necked spout and the jugs have beak style spout embellished with a vase-shaped moulding with a drop shaped form to the nadir.


The cream jug and sugar bowl were made by C S Harris & Sons Ltd in 1924 and the coffee pot and milk jug were crafted in 1936 by C E; they have all been crafted in the same classic English design.


The underside of the cream jug and sugar bowl bear the retailer's mark 'Lowe, Chester'.
