Carlo Mario Camusso (founded 1933)
Beautifully crafted by a renowned 20th century South American maker, this tea and coffee set features bulbous Rococo-style forms with intricate detailing.
Of an elegant design, this large, eight-piece tea and coffee set is made from sterling silver by the Peruvian maker, Carlo Mario Camusso.
The set comprises a large hot water kettle on a stand with a burner, coffee pot, teapot, milker, two sugar bowls, and a pair of tongs. All pieces are displayed on a tray with richly decorated borders and twin handles.
Each piece stands on four outward-curling feet, topped with foliate detailing. All pieces are of a bulbous form, synonymous with the Rococo style. The kettle as well as tea and coffee jugs feature long, ornate spouts, their design coherent with the rest of the elements. All pieces apart from the sugar bowl have beautifully crafted handles with scrolling motifs with detailing in the form of acanthus leaves.
The covers of the kettle, pots, and sugar bowl are of a fluted form and are surmounted with a beautifully cast scroll motif, allowing for a more comfortable grip.
