This exceptional antique George IV sterling silver tea service consists of a teapot, cream jug, and sugar bowl.
Each piece of this impressive silver tea service has a rectangular rounded form onto four Regency style feet.
The plain body of each piece is encircled with a band of embossed and chased decorated stylised floral motifs on a matte background.
The teapot is fitted with a flush hinged, domed hallmarked cover; the flush hinge indicates the fine quality of this service.

The Regency style teapot, cream jug and sugar bowl are fitted with C scroll handles, ornamented with applied chased scrolling acanthus leaf decorated thumbpieces.
Each component of this service is supported by four Regency style bracket style feet ornamented with a shaped claw foot, accented with scrolling leaf decoration and stylised floral motifs.
The cream jug and sugar bowl retain the original gilded interiors.
