Description


This exceptional vintage George VI sterling silver four piece tea and coffee service consists of a coffee jug, teapot, cream jug and covered sugar bowl, with matching tray.


Each piece of the silver tea set has a circular rounded form, embellished with incurved Art Deco segments.


The plain surface of each piece has a subtle planished finish.


The teapot and coffee jug are fitted with domed hinged covers and the sugar bowl features a push fit cover, ornamented with a continuation of incurved segments; the cover to the sugar bowl indicates the superior quality of the service.


The covers are surmounted with carved satin wood and sterling silver topped finials, securing to the interior with a screw fitment.


The cover of the coffee jug opens to reveal the original, removable fabric filter/strainer.


The teapot and coffee jug are fitted with incurved, angular satin wood handles incorporating impressive tiered thumbpieces; this tiered motif is an iconic style for this Art Deco period.


The handles to the cream jug and sugar bowl are fitted with sterling silver incurved angular handles with plain elevated thumbpieces, reflecting the style of the teapot and coffee jug handles.


The teapot is fitted with a swan necked spout; the coffee jug and cream jug feature truncated spouts.


This exceptional vintage tea and coffee set sits to the original and impressive oval rounded Art Deco tea tray.


The surface of the tray is plain and features further incurved segments, identical to the body of the tea service.


The tray is fitted with two satin wood handpieces accented with concave fluted terminals.


This exceptional English sterling silver tea set and tray, crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Edward Barnard & Sons Ltd, bear different date letters; the tray was assayed in 1936 and the tea service in 1940.
