This antique Victorian sterling silver three piece bachelor tea service/set consists of a teapot, sugar bowl and cream jug.


Each piece of this 1800s silver tea set has a plain circular drum form.


The surface of each piece is encircled with impressive bright cut engraved floral festoons, suspended from oval motifs accented with stellate style designs.


Either side of each piece is ornamented with oval cartouche surmounted with a ribbon bow design and displaying the contemporary engraved initials 'HL'.


The upper and lower portions of each body is encompassed with undulating wrigglework decorated borders, in addition to applied bead borders to the rims.


The silver teapot is fitted with a flat hinged, hallmarked cover surmounted with an impressive carved wood and silver finial; the flush hinge indicates the high quality of the service.


The surface of the cover is encircled with bright cut engraved bands, reflecting the ornamentation to the body.
