Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver four piece tea and coffee set/service consists of a coffee pot, teapot, sugar bowl and cream jug.


Each piece has a pear shaped panelled form onto a hexafoil shaped foot.


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


The teapot and coffee pot are fitted with domed hinged hallmarked covers reflecting the identical concave formation as the body and embellished with further bright cut engraved floral designs.


Each cover retains the original hallmarked, cast sterling silver panelled finial, incorporating floral motifs and a ball style terminal.


The upper rims of the cream jug and sugar bowl, in addition to the elevated shoulders of the teapot and coffee pot, bear a paralleling cast and applied opposing scrolling border accented with an interlacing tapering swirl design to each sub-section.


The components of this antique tea set are fitted with impressive cast silver C shaped handles featuring scrolling strapwork style thumbpieces and embellished with further bright cut engraved floral sprays to the handpiece, in addition to bifurcating, scrolling lower terminals.


The coffee pot and teapot are fitted with impressive swan necked spouts, each embellished with bright cut engraved leaf designs to the lower portions and further applied ornamentation to the lip, reflecting the design to the thumbpieces.
