Victorian sterling silver 5 piece tea and coffee service by William & Henry Statford, Sheffield, 1865.
A spectacular Victorian silver tea and coffee service comprising of five silver pieces - coffee pot, tea pot, covered hot milk jug - which is a rare addition to tea and coffee services, cream jug, and sugar bowl. The set also has a sixth piece - a perfectly matched silver plated tea kettle made by Martin Hall & Co, and was also made during the Victorian period. This impressive set was made in the lovely 'Abercrombie' pattern - with embossed flowers on trellis patterns, and has beaded work along the rims. The set is baluster in shape and the coffee pot, tea pot, and milk jug all still have their original cast silver finials.
