This is for a Very Unique and Rare Antique (19th century) Silver plated Tea Set from John Turton. It is styled with highly decorated Victorian Gothic detailing through out the pieces from the spouts to the feet. The set consists of a Tea pot on a stand for tilting, a warmer, a footed coffee pot, footed tea pot along with the matching creamer and lidded sugar bowl. It is marked with makers marks of J / T / S, made in Sheffield England and Hand Chased E. These pieces all have a lovely flower final, to a bird poring spout, fan styled feet, gothic male face on the spouts, intact ceramic spacers, highly decorated handles to floral and leave high relief decorations.I paired this set with a wonderful silver plated tray that is also highly decorated from Webster Wilcox, International Silver in pattern 2882. The set needed a perfect tray to show off the glory of the tea set and large enough to hold all the pieces. This set is amazingly detailed and dates to the years. The pieces are all in wonderful condition and this set will make for a lovely collector set to also use for many more years to come. This set is so impressive and the pictures don't do it justice!

Assume items are preloved and or vintage and such can have its own idiosyncrasies due to age alone and normal wear and tear. Remember vintage items have been used and will have small issues like surface scratches and age appropriate wear. I will show any major issues in my pictures as they are part of the description.
