An exceptional French silver and vermeil/gold wash tea service created by Henri Soufflet, late 19th Century. The set is comprised of twelve tea spoons, strainer, and tongs which are all monogrammed with the letters "BC" in script. The set displays beautifully in the original presentation box which also has been monogrammed on the top with the same initials. Each piece features shell motifs with interlacing leaves and the lovely script monogram.
French, Circa 1895, marked for .950 silver as denoted by the Minerve 1st. titre mark and the maker's mark for Soufflet, Paris.
