Description


This exceptional antique Edwardian sterling silver cafe au lait set consists of a coffee jug and hot milk jug, each crafted in the gothic style.


The coffee jug and hot milk jug have a plain hexagonal baluster shaped form onto a panelled spreading foot.


The surface of each piece is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest depicting a demi-lion holding an axe.


Each piece is fitted with the original hallmarked hinged cover surmounted with an impressive sterling silver panelled finial.


The cover of each jug incorporates an applied incurved bracket and elevated scrolling thumbpiece.


The milk jug and coffee jug retain the original handles overlaid with interwoven bamboo, strategically interlaced to produce a segmented braided design.


Each jug has a plain sparrow beak spout ornamented with applied moulded decoration to the rim.


Date: 1904

This antique café au lait set is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The interior of the each piece has been professionally cleaned and is ready for use.

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