Description

This beautiful trio is comprised of a tea pot, a milk jug, and a sugar jar. Each piece is crafted from silver and malachite in a distinctive angular Art Deco style. The tea pot is set with a malachite inlaid grip, while its hinged lid is surmounted by a malachite handle. The milk jug is similarly formed, while the sugar jar features twin handles. The design scheme of the set is highly distinctive: clean lines and skewed angles predominate.

Each piece is stamped with an indistinct makers mark and ‘800’, which indicates the purity of the silver.
