Antique Silver Bachelor's Tea Set
A fine example of an antique Bachelor's tea set consisting of a tea pot, milk jug and sugar bowl. They are a small size, designed for Tea for One. It is a stylish set with an elegant shape, ribbed detail to the base and ebonised handles on the teapot.
It is excellent quality with a combined weight of 333g with the handles. It is fully hallmarked for Marples & Co, Birmingham, 1902. The marks are slightly rubbed but still distinguishable.
The whole set is in very good condition. There are some faint surface marks and a few light scratches and some small dents and dinks. There is one scratch on the teapot which I have photographed and there is an old split in the wooden finial and another small mark on the wooden handle but overall the set displays very well. It has been gently cleaned and polished is ready for use.
