All three pieces of the set feature a beautiful geometric design often referred to as'melon-shape' due to the segments between the intricate chased floral motifs. Contrary to the above, we believe that this tea set may be more accurately described as a pumpkin design due to the finial on top which resembles a pumpkin more so than a melon. The sides and handles are profusely decorated with flowers, Acanthus leaves and fruits. The interior of the sugar bowl and milk jug is fully gilded - the rich and lustrous gold tone not only serves an aesthetic purpose but allows for contents to be held within, without tarnishing the silver. Such elegant decorations allow for this set to be used as a centrepiece attraction on a fine dining table or for practical usage - a luxurious afternoon tea experience may be elevated further with such opulent silverware.All pieces are clearly hallmarked with matching English marks. A wonderful addition to a silver collection, dining table or a luxurious home interior, whether be it for display or practical usage for an indulging afternoon tea experience.
