Silver Plated Metal Christopher Dresser Tea Suitcase, circa 1880



Christopher Dresser tea metal is in dark blue-grained leather. The design is the number # 85275. In very good condition with its original pieces. Silverware is from England and pink teacups and saucers from Limoges in France. This tea travel suitcase contains silver-plated items designed by Dresser: one methylated-spirit stove, one three-feet stand, one sugar tongue, two tea spoons, one tea box with two compartments. The suitcase also contains porcelain, two tea cups (diam. 9 cm) and two saucers (diameter 11.5 cm). All the silverware has been designed by Christopher Dresser (1834-1904), famous English designer of the end of the 19th century, during the Victorian era. He was a major figure in the Aesthetic Movement and a major contributor to the allied Anglo-Japanese or Modern English style, both of which originated in England and had long-lasting international influence.
