Silver bachelor tea set

£ 1,875

Silversmith
Place

London

Year

1872 & 1876

Small and very pretty three-piece bachelor tea set comprising a silver teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl. Each piece is hand-chased in fine detail with flowers and foliage. The milk and sugar have gilded interiors and the teapot is fitted with its original insulators in the handle to prevent it getting too hot.

The bachelor teapot is a charming piece of antique silver, being simply a smaller version of full-size teapots, but intended for one person. Occasionally mistaken as part of a child's tea service, they are deliberately petite and were created long before the advent of the tea bag!
