On offer is this truly superb collectible four piece tea and coffee service. The four items - 1 x teapot, 1 x coffee pot, 1 x sugar and creamer are all in really good condition overall, the silver plating shines up beautifully still all over. There are a few light surface scuffs/ scratches here and there but certainly nothing which detracts.
They are each of traditional bulbous rounded form and have been decorated with the same engraved design featuring bright cut themed floral swags, a central blank circular plaque and exotic birds surrounding this. The detailing is superb and as shown in the photos has added such a quality finish. I just adore it!
The bases have a ribbed area which makes a nice visible feature.
All hinges work as they should still and all lids retain their original silver plated finials.
Marked for Martin Hall and Co of Sheffield, Aesthetic movement circa 1870's.
To give an idea of size the teapot measures 24cm (9 and 1/2 inches) in length from handle to spout and 18cm (7 inches) in height to the top of the finial.
A truly beautiful stylish 19th century tea and coffee service ready to be collected and enjoyed once again.
