Description

Fine quality Sheffield 1906 hallmarked English very unusual oval shaped antique tea and coffee silver service by Harry Atkin, famous and very collectable maker, contained in the original fitted storage and travel case. It includes both a silver coffee pot and a silver teapot with ebony handles and ebony and silver finials, a silver sugar bowl and milk jug with gilt lined interiors, and silver sugar tongs. The sugar tongs that are included are of the proper style and size, but are Georgian, hallmarked London 1797. The case is wood with leather covering, and a cobalt blue velvet and satin interior, with a hidden push button catch. The vase shaped half fluted style of this service is very classic and will go with any period. They have reeded edges, and the coffee pot stands on a stepped footed base. The fluted lids of the two pots have ebony vase shaped finials, that echo the shaped ebony handles.
Size-coffee pot is 11 inches high by 9.75 inches wide (end of spout to end of handle). Milk jug is 4 7/8 inches wide by 4 inches high. Sugar bowl is 6.75 inches wide by 4 inches high. Teapot is 10.25 inches wide by 6.75 inches high. Tongs are 5.5 inches long. Case overall size is 21.75 inches wide by 14.5 inches deep by 5.5 inches high.
Weight-silver only-a very generous 1560 grams or over 50 troy ounces.
Weight with case for shipping-11 lbs. 3 oz.
It is a rare service with all pieces hallmarked exactly the same (excepting the tongs, London 1797) and fitted into the original fitted protective case. The case
was meant for storage and travel, and has protected it very well over more than 100 years. This service is beautifully made, an excellent gauge and weight of silver, and in hardly used condition.
A lovely and complete service for coffee and tea, complete with its own storage container. It would make a treasured gift or a present for yourself.
