Description


This exceptional antique 4 piece tea set in sterling silver consists of a coffee pot, teapot, sugar bowl and cream jug.


Each piece has a pear shaped panelled form onto four bracket style feet.


The pieces of this Victorian tea and coffee set are embellished with rounded concave panels displaying impressive bright cut engraved scrolling leaf and floral designs, incorporating a shaped vacant cartouche to either side.


The paralleling upper rim of each piece is encompassed with an applied moulded border.


The teapot and coffee pot are fitted with domed hinged hallmarked covers reflecting the identical concave formation as that to the body and embellished with a single scrolling leaf motif.


Each cover retains the original hallmarked sterling silver finial embellished with bright cut engraved ornamentation.


The components of this antique tea set are fitted with impressive hallmarked S shaped handles featuring scrolling thumbpieces embellished with further bright cut engraved shell and interlacing scrolling designs.


The coffee pot and teapot are fitted with impressive swan necked spouts, each embellished with bright cut engraved opposing scrolling leaf decoration accented with panels of trellis patterns.


The cream jug and sugar bowl retain the original gilded interior.


Date: 1843

Condition


This impressive antique sterling silver tea set is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

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

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these examples of Victorian silverware.
