Tommi Parzinger for Dorlyn Silversmiths Coffee/Tea Service in Brass and Walnut


This gorgeous coffee or tea service set was designed by Tommi Parzinger, among the most celebrated Mid-Century Modernist designers, for Dorlyn Silversmiths. The set includes one large coffee pot, one medium tea pot, a creamer, and a sugar bowl with lid. The service was created in lustrous bronze of a particularly warm hue and features burnished walnut handles. The two pots and the sugar bowl feature circular finials chased with straight lines extending from the spoke-like center. The base of the largest pot features a brass holder with a four leaf clover pattern incised throughout. When a flame is placed below to keep the pot warm, a captivating geometric design is projected onto adjacent walls. They are not only functional, but they are beautiful objects in their own right. The service is in excellent condition.
