An Elegant Sterling Silver Tea Set

 

This beautiful tea set has an oval tray with open work done on the side railing. ( I see a dark spot on the tray which didn’t get cleaned with silver polish!) There are handles on each side that have a very special form. The teapot has an unusual handle and the spout tapers to a tiny opening. There is fluting on the bottom part of each vessel. The three pieces include a teapot with lid , an open sugar bowl and a creamer. There is an English hallmark of “Birmingham” on the rim of the tray. An exquisite set we don’t often see!

 

Measurements: The teapot is 1.5”h. The tray is 4” w, including the handles.

Circa: 1900

Price: $295
