Each piece of this service has a plain circular rounded form onto three ball feet.

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

The cover to the box has subtly contorted and no longer sits flush when closed; this impressive box can be considered in excellent presentation condition, in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each piece, the cartouche to the presentation box, the reverse of the spoons and interior of the tongs are all very clear.

The part hallmarks to the interior of the teapot cover are also very clear.

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