Absolutely beautiful, W & S Blackinton, full tea/ coffee service from Towle. Includes Coffee pot, Teapot, tilting pot on stand and burner, creamer, sugar , waste pot and tray. The tray is very solid with ornate flowers and scrolls on the handles and rim.
Each serving piece has a bulbous body with scrolled handles, a round pedestal base and berry finials. Beautiful, sturdy and heavy set. The sugar bowl is from Birmingham Silver and matches perfectly.
The original sugar bowl broke a handle in transit (I will happily include in the set if new owner decides to have it repaired). Footed/handled tray measuring approx 30 1/2" hand to handle and 20" wide. Coffee and Tea pot measure approx 11 1/2" tall x 11" wide handle to spout and 10 1/2" tall x 11" wide, Tilting pot measures approx 16" tall on stand, 11" tall alone and 9 wide. Sugar approx 6 3/4" tall, creamer approx 6" tall, waste bowl 4 1/8 tall.
The pots appear to be in almost unused condition. The inside of the pots--especially the tea, tilting and coffee pots--are very clean with one spot inside the creamer where it looks like it was tested. The sugar bowl has more spotting inside and a little wear on the outside. The tray has some typical signs of age and use such as light surface scratches and possible polish residue/ tarnish.
The stand for the tilting pot has a clean break on one side (see pics) which can easily be repaired, but is completely functional regardless. This listing is for the Coffee/Tea service only.
