This exquisite tea and coffee service was crafted in Kashmir region of India in the 19th Century. The four piece set comprises of a trefoil-shaped tray, upon which stands a large coffee pot, a slightly smaller tea pot, and a twin-handled sugar bowl.

The four silver items are similarly decorated with green, turquoise and cobalt blue enamels, which are arranged into various shapes and set against a foliate silver ground.

Each pot is fitted with a lid, topped by a flower bud finial. Below, each piece is fitted with a handle, or two for the sugar bowl, which take the form of stylised birds, with curling tails and open beaks where the handle meets the top of the piece. In the main body of the piece, the enamels are contained within moulded medallions, and boteh forms. The lower section of the pots are scalloped, and the feet are pierced and flared, imitating leaf forms.

The trefoil-shaped tray is decorated in similar fashion, giving the set a clear stylistic unity.

Because of Kashmir's geographical location, on the northern periphery of India and bordering Pakistan and China, Kashmiri crafts and decorative arts tend to blend these cultural sources. The boteh, for instance, is a Persian motif, and one which frequently appears in Kashmiri woollen scarves and other fabrics.
