This fine antique Edward VIII sterling silver five piece tea and coffee service / set consists of a coffee pot, teapot, cream jug, sugar bowl and tea caddy.

The pieces of this tea and coffee service have a plain oval rounded form.

The lower portion each piece is embellished with an embossed fluted design.

The flared upper rim of the coffee pot, cream jug, sugar bowl and tea caddy are ornamented with an impressive gadroon border accented with a shell and scroll design to each corner.

The shoulders to the teapot and coffee pot are encircled with further gadroon decorated borders; matching the design to the rim.

The coffee jug and teapot are fitted with flush hinged domed hallmarked covers, retaining the original fluted finials.

The teapot and coffee pot are fitted with impressive angular silver handles with a leaf decorated lower socket.

The flush hinges and silver handles to the teapot and coffee pot indicate the fine quality of this service.

The teapot and coffee pot are fitted with swan necked spouts with fluted decoration to the underside of the lower portion.

This tea service benefits from a fine and impressive tea caddy which retains the original push fit hallmarked cover and fluted finial.

This five piece service is displayed on a gallery tray for illustrative purpose only - the tray (W5295) may be purchased separately from the AC Silver inventory if so desired.

This antique tea and coffee service is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional condition.

There is some crazing to the finial and handle resistors as expected in keeping with age; this does not affect the integrity of the pieces.

The embossed and applied decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece and part hallmarks to the covers are all clear in keeping with age; due to their location there is some partial wear to the hallmarks, they remain legible however.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these impressive examples of antique teaware.
