Description: The pieces of this fine silver tea and coffee service comprise of a teapot, coffee pot, sugar bowl and cream jug. The items are larger in size than usual for such a service which sets them apart from others of this era. Each piece has an oval rounded form. The teapot and coffee pot are fitted with Art Deco style carved angular wood handles and finials. This is a truly magnificent set of exceptional quality silver with very clear hallmarks by a famous maker. A few tiny scratches to the handle of the sugar bowl are visible on close inspection but this in no way takes away from the overall appearance of the set. The beautiful profile and smooth clean lines of this set would make it a unique collection that would enhance any table. With the soaring price of silver over the last few years, it would be a most prudent investment, as well as a very functional and beautiful service to use and display. It’s beauty will be appreciated while this magnificent service appreciates in value.
