This gorgeous solid, Sterling Silver repousse Victorian Tea Set / service was made in Sheffield, England during the late 1800's or early 1900's. The set is comprised of Teapot with Ebony wood handle and lid knob, sugar bowl, and creamer. The set appears to have never been used. The gold gilt is still intact in the creamer and sugar and as you can see in the photo - the teapot's interior is pristine.

Each piece has the same hallmark, adorned with the same period pattern and cartouche. The pieces do not have nor do they ever appear to have had monograms.

The intricate floral repousse is absolutely breathtaking. I have tons more pictures! Please convo if you'd like to see them.

This set is OLD - the Ebony wood could stand polishing, the sugar bowl is a bit out of round and seems to have a very small slit in the ruffled lip - but it wouldn't photograph. Other than that, the handle is tight, the knob tight, no dents, no signs of use. Just stunning!

----------------------------------------------------

You may be wondering - Why is the teapot so small? Because back when this set was made, Tea was rare and very, very expensive. It was a luxury of the Elite and brewed in small quantities. The wealthier the family, the more elaborate both the teaset and the ritual accompanying it.

As commerce opened and transportation advanced, by the 30's the sets got bigger and bigger and drank larger and larger quantities of tea as it became more available and cheaper. And then coffee entered the picture!

A modern use for this set? Sunday breakfast in bed!! Or order a very, very expensive tea and savor it!
