Description

London 1813 English hallmarked solid silver George III period oval form tea service. It is now over 200 years old. The maker's mark
is mainly obscured, but from what is visible, and from a similar set sold previously, it was likely made by Solomon Hougham, a very good London maker. The rest of the hallmarks are clear, and all three pieces have identical marks. The teapot lid and silver handle have appropriate partial silver marks. The number 130 also is marked under the teapot.
The style of this service is half fluted, with the addition of a gadrooned chase and applied edge trim with leaf and shell applied accents. On
the band above the body fluting is a lovely and delicate bright cut engraving of grapes, leaves and grape vine. The top of the teapot and the handle are also delicately bright cut engraved with interlinked bands.
All pieces stand on ball feet. The teapot has a beautiful large solid silver finial and as the handle is also solid silver, it is insulated with ivory spacer bands. The sugar bowl and milk jug retain their original gilt interiors.
Size- teapot is 11.5 inches wide
(end of spout to end of handle), by 6 inches high. Jug is 5.5 inches wide by 4.25 inches high. Sugar bowl is 8.5 inches wide by 4.75 inches high.
Weight-very good at 1375 grams or more than 44 troy ounces.
It is a lovely and unusual period service with very good weight and stylish design, in very good condition.
A lovely as well as functional service to own and use, and to keep for investment. With silver prices soaring over the last five years, it makes good sense to acquire precious metals.
