Five-Piece Sterling Silver Coffee & Tea Service by Whiting

About the Item

GEORGE III STYLE FIVE-PIECE STERLING SILVER COFFEE AND TEA SERVICE SET By Whiting Manufacturing Co., New York; each with Whiting hallmark (two-headed chimera w/ encircled W), "3358 / 3 GILLS / PAT. 1892 / 925/1000 FINE" Item # 104VAD21S An exquisite five-piece tea and coffee service executed entirely in .925 sterling silver by Whiting Manufacturing of New York. Renowned for their quality, the present set is no exception: note the exquisite chasing and chiseling of the cast elements. Each handle and leg shows elaborate development of the Georgian motif with brilliant scrolling acanthus complete with minute hammered texturing. The set has never been monogrammed and presents beautifully with a high-polish surface. As always, we have cleaned the surfaces entirely through hand-polishing and without any machine buffing, preserving the overall soft surface patina throughout. Weights and dimensions: * Coffee pot: 34.77 ozt; 7 3/4" H x 11" W x 6 1/2" D (base) * Tea pot: 30.29 ozt; 6 1/8" H x 11" W x 6 7/8" D (base) * Sugar: 16.33 ozt; 5 1/4" H x 8 3/4" W x 4 7/8" D (base) * Creamer: 8.82 ozt; 3 3/4" H x 5 1/4" W x 4 1/8" D * Waste pot: 9.41 ozt; 3 1/2" H x 4 1/8" W x 4 1/8" D * Total weight: 99.62 ozt Condition Report:[coffee pot] tiny dents and divots to body visible under raking light (with handle on left, the polished spherical body above the legs) and evidence of some dent removal; to the right of the handle a tiny dent over four tiny abrasions; other tiny scuffs and abrasions to the body;[tea pot] lid appears to have been pressed at some point (note the difference in form between the coffee pot lid and the teapot lid), very slight "give" in the insulator at the bottom of the pot, minor abrasions to the spherical body including "speck" dents, light surface scuffs; [sugar] good condition, specks of abrasion; [waste pot] good condition, no noted flaws; [creamer] one minute surface dimple, minor specks of abrasion, significant smoothing of the detail around the rim from handling over the years. Handles of the coffee and tea pots both have ever-so-slight wiggle in the joint. Overall the set remains a fine presentation, free of any monogram or surface alteration.
