This exceptional vintage Elizabeth II sterling silver cafe au lait set consists of a coffee pot, hot milk jug and covered sugar bowl, all crafted in the George I style.

The coffee pot and hot milk jug have a plain oval baluster form and the sugar bowl has a plain oval rounded form, all onto an oval domed spreading foot.

The surface of each piece is plain and unembellished with applied moulded decoration to the rim.

The coffee pot and milk jug are fitted with the original hallmarked hinged covers and the sugar bowl features a push fit cover, all surmounted with impressive sterling silver tiered urn style finials.

The milk jug and coffee pot retain the original opposing scroll, carved pear wood handles with scrolling sterling silver lower terminals, in addition to large leaf motifs to the upper socket in junction with the body.

The sugar bowl is fitted with a pair of sterling silver opposing scroll handles, matching the same style as the pear wood handles to the other pieces.

The coffee pot has an impressive swan necked spout and the jug has a beak style spout embellished with a vase-shaped moulding with a drop shaped form to the nadir.
