Antique George IV Sterling Silver Three Piece Tea Service
1820 to 1824 London
Offered by AC Silver
The body of each piece is embellished with chased flower and scroll decoration incorporation a shaped vacant cartouche to one side.
The body of the teapot is further embellished to one side with an embossed motif depicting three figures afloat in a small craft.
The impressive teapot spout, foot and hinged domed cover are ornamented with chased flower and scrolling leaf decoration.
The cover is surmounted with a silver flower and leaf finial.
The teapot is fitted with a plain carved ivory handle.
The cream jug and sugar bowl have applied fruiting vine decorated rims and chased floral decorated S scroll handles.
Although the cream jug and sugar bowl are not identical to the teapot, the items were purchased from a family who had them for many years, and as the pieces are so similar, it is appropriate to offer them as a composite tea service.
The teapot was made by Joseph Craddock and William Ker Reid, London, 1820.
The cream jug and sugar bowl were made by Joseph Briggs, London, 1824.
