George V's jubilee was in 1935, marking 25 years as the king of the United Kingdom and, although this silver tea service was made in 1934, the set is marked with the optional jubilee hallmark.

Art Deco was a popular design style in the 1920s and '30s characterised especially by sleek geometric or stylised forms. It represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress. For that reason silverware for dining and entertaining were popular categories of goods to reflect the style of the time.
