Exquisite coffee service comprised of a large coffee pot, lidded sugar and cream. This set of very unusual size, much larger than any similar Empire style set I've come across, anywhere. Plus, Empire decoration at its best! The spout of the pot has a charming duck's head. All three pieces rest upon long legs tapering to precisely chased paw feet, and topped with elaborate foliate mounts, all exquisitely chased! The lids are topped with scrolling foliage bursting forth with a bud of berries. The edges adorning bodies and lids are the elegant stiff leaf motif so characteristic of the Empire styling. And pearl edges compliment the banded rims of all three pieces. Finally, the neck of the coffee spout boasts a splendid foliate and floral design. The handles are ebony, affixed to the sterling with gracefully styled floral medallions. Both Sugar, lid and cream are washed with gold. The pot stands an impressive 11.75"-12" and weighs 965 grams! The sugar stands 7.75"-8" tall, weighs 540 grams, and the cream stands 5.75"; weight 207 grams. An imposing ravishing set!

Please see photos for marks. Condition is very good. Some very minor signs of use only. A difficult to see rough spot perhaps, nothing a professional polish wouldn't subdue.

Weight of the total set is 1512 grams!
