COMMENTS: Amazing fully hand chased repousse tea set by Whiting in solid sterling silver. The pattern has intricately detailed floral embellishment with ornate scrolled borders. Applied handles are also embossed with ornate details and are crafted in an elegant curved design. Condition is very good to excellent with noted damage being a seam split in the top of the handle of the tea pot and the lid has come loose of the hinge. It appears that someone tried to repair it but it did not take. I checked with our goldsmith and he can expertly repair the hinge at your request (no additional charge). Pictured as received with undisturbed natural patina.
Additional photographs are available by request.
Special requests for polishing, sizing and shipping MUST be requested through the Ruby Lane site, preferably in the comment section when placing an order. Requests through email may not be received.
