Early Art Deco Silver Tea Set*

Item Description

Good looking early Art Deco sterling silver tea set made by Walker and Hall and hallmarked for 1916/17.

Although the true Deco era had not quite begun, it’s obvious that the influences to this change in design style were already in place when looking closely at this very fine three-piece set.

The teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl are all basically circular in shape, with sharp clean lines, each being styled with eight arched-top side panels, the top rims showing a raised flange detail.

For heat insulation purposes, the recently invented wonder plastic Bakelite is used for the handle and top finial on the teapot whilst the silver handles on the jug and bowl are somewhat more ornately styled with echoes of the soon to be over At Nouveau era.

All the pieces are crisply hallmarked, the pot for 1916 and the jug and bowl for 1917. 

The teapot has a capacity of approximately three-quarters of a litre – a little over a pint and a quarter.
