Favourite Item
The pieces of this fine antique sterling silver tea service have a circular compressed form on to a circular spreading foot.

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.
