Made of solid silver, raised on four legs topped with rams head and centred with a carved relief plaque depicting cherubs, the oval shaped tiers surfaced with mirrored glass, the top tier in detachable tray form with beaded rim and twin handles, the lower tier raised on four continuing legs modelled at the top as acanthus leaves leading to hoof feet, marked in several places with German silver crescent moon and crown, incised with '800' for standard silver and sickle for Schleissner.
The final image shows a rare original photograph of the silver tea table from the company archive of J. D. Schleissner & Sohne. The photograph is inscribed 'No. 10469' with additional numbers below this. Examination of J.D. Schleissner & Sohne's original photographs, design drawings and company moulds revealed that the work was made in 1910 for a family in the banking business in Aachen, Germany.
