This fine antique George III sterling silver three piece tea service consists of a teapot, cream jug and sugar bowl.

Each piece of this impressive Georgian service has an oval rounded form.

The incurved shaped body of each piece is encircled with bright cut engraved stylised scrolling leaf designs above an undulating link band to the central portion.

The decoration incorporates a small leaf bordered oval vacant cartouche to one side.

The swept shoulders of the teapot are ornamented with further bright cut engraved undulating decoration.

The upper and lower rim of each piece is encircled with an applied rope twist style border.

The teapot is fitted with a plain domed hinged hallmarked cover surmounted by the original sterling silver lozenge shaped finial.

The teapot is fitted with a plain sterling silver angular faceted handle and plain swan necked spout.

The cream jug and sugar bowl are fitted with sterling silver thread decorated angular handles.

The impressive sugar bowl and cream jug retain the original gilded interior.

The pieces of this provincial Georgian tea service are large examples for such a service.
