Description

This nine-piece matching silver service includes a teapot, coffee pot, hot milk jug, kettle on lampstand, creamer, covered sugar bowl, covered tea caddy, waste bowl with strainer and a two-handled tray. All the pieces are engraved with arms and crest; the plain bodies are decorated with the cut-card technique which consists of thin sheets of silver previously cut in and soldered into the body to create a relief effect. In this case, the cut-card has been shaped as strap-work. The spouts finish with a monster-head and wooden handles are used for the pieces containing hot water.

This early 20th Century set is loosely based on the famous silver from the English Huguenot period of the early 18th century, which is renowned for the high quality of craftsmanship and detailing.

Each piece with full English hallmarks for sterling silver on the bodies and covers; the bases stamped ‘Made in England’.
