Date: 1936

Condition


This antique tea and coffee service is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional condition.

There is some crazing to the finial and handle resistors as expected in keeping with age; this does not affect the integrity of the pieces.

The embossed and applied decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece and part hallmarks to the covers are all clear in keeping with age and location.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these impressive examples of antique teaware.
