Three Piece Tea Service by Elkington*
Handsome three-piece silver tea service from Elkington fashioned in such a way as to give the impression of individual riveted panels.
Delighfully styled and although perhaps not truly crafted in the Arts & Crafts way, the look is very much so.
The teapot has two insulating ivory discs at top and bottom of its handle and pours very well.
The milk jug and sugar bowl both have gilded intereiors.
Hallmarked at the Birmingham assay office for the year 1873 and showing the earliest Elkington & Co maker’s mark, the initials FE for Frederick Elkington. Each piece is numbered beneath with the model number 13080.
