This listing is for a lovely 19th Century COIN Silver 3-piece tea set made by famous New York City silversmith William Gale, c. 1822-1862. The design features a wide embossed band around the shoulder of each piece. The finial on the teapot and sugar bowl is shaped as a large urn with pedestal base and dome top cover. There is a very faint armorial on one side of each piece with each piece stamped "W. Gale" with two hallmarks. The combined weight is approximately 2205 grams. The set consists of:
(1) Teapot - measures 7 3/4" high, 10 1/2" wide and 6 1/2" deep. Weighs 975 grams.
(2) Covered Sugar - measures 7 1/4" high, 8 1/2" wide and 5 3/4" wide. Weighs 795 grams.
(3) Creamer - measures 5" high (at spout), 6 3/4" wide (spout to handle) and 4 3/4" deep. Weighs 435 grams.
Condition: Each piece is in very good to excellent Estate condition with no major flaws and reflecting only minor signs of normal wear. The only flaw we found is a tiny indention on the handle of the teapot (see photos). No other noted flaws or repairs.
