The components of this antique silver tea set are fitted with impressive hallmarked, cast sterling silver S-shaped handles featuring leaf decorated thumbpieces, in addition to interlacing designs to the lower portion of the handpiece. The cast upper sockets of each handle are ornamented with organic leaf designs in junction with the body.
