An Art Déco sterling silver tea service

An Art Déco sterling silver tea service
Sheffield 1937 by Emile Viner

This fine antique George VI sterling silver three piece tea service consists of a teapot, cream jug and sugar bowl. The pieces of this impressive tea set have a plain panelled, octagonal form onto a collet foot. The plain body of each piece is embellished with an applicated Art Deco frieze showing celtic designs to the upper portion. The tea pot is fitted with plain flush hinged covers which indicates the fine quality of the service. The cover retains the original carved ebony and sterling silver finial in the angular Art Deco style. Further the teapot pot is fitted with a carved angular ebony handle. The sugar bowl and the cream jug are fitted with angular sterling silver handles matching the same style as the teapot handle.
The pieces of this antique silver tea set are a very good gauge of silver, of the well-known fine quality being typical for Emile Viner and in excellent condition.

This George VI tea service has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition, without monograms or inscriptions. The engraved decoration to each piece is very crisp.
