Batchelor sets are such gorgeous examples of sterling for they represent a time when tea was the gathering of a decorated table setting featuring dignified porcelain and silver. Usable today, this Victorian set consists of: teapot, sugar and creamer all with matching hallmarks for William Hutton & Sons, London 1894. A total weight of 382gms is a respectable gauge while lobed bodies with ovoid bases and timber handle to teapot make for superb Victorian finery.
Slight lateral movement to handle. Minor dings & surface marks.
Spout to handle: 7.75. Handle to handle: 5.5. We received positive review by the highly regarded American Southeastern Antiquing and Collecting Magazine, in the article. Is a species of orchid found in the Himalayas and I see wandering through a Himalayan orchid filled lane as a beautiful vision. While the internet is a fine source of information I cannot recommend highly enough the importance of actual reference books.
