Elegant Neoclassical Silverplated Coffee/Tea Service by Elkington & Co.

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This lustrous six piece coffee/tea service was created circa 1950 by the legendary silversmiths Elkington & Co of Birmingham England. It includes a tray, a samovar, a coffee and tea pot, a sugar bowl, and a cream saucer. While each piece in the service is decorated with elaborate flora and fauna etchings and ribbed striations (with the exception of the samovar), they all have distinguishing idiosyncratic details. The samovar, for example, has a mushroom shaped finial, whereas the coffee and tea pots feature meadow buttercup finials. Additionally, the handles of each vessel incorporate a charming vine motif inlaid with ringed bone insets. The samovar includes a kerosene heater at its base. This service is not only a decorative splendour, but an instant family heirloom that will surely hold its value for many decades to come.
