From my personal collection of well-cared for SILVER items... A very high quality, thick silver overlay wrap on porcelain tea set service pieces; there are no markings anywhere that I can find, on the inside or outside of the pieces. Silver completely covers the exterior of the pieces and is "rolled" over the edges for a tight fitting cover; you can actually feel the thickness with your fingers; items were produced in the same high quality as those of Wilhelm Spahr. I have priced this set as "plated". Coffee pot measures 11" high (with lid) and 9" wide from spout to handle; the tea pot measures 8" high (with lid) and 9" wide from spout to handle; creamer is 3.5" x 3.5"; sugar is 4 3/4" high x 5 1/4" wide, handle to handle.
The waiters tray has a beautiful scratch free finish--it hardly looks used; it is elegantly scrolled, footed and has ornate handles; It measures 13 1/2" wide x 23 1/2" long, handle to handle, x 2 high. I originally received the set from my Grandmother from Germany in the late 70's, but don't know if the set was new or vintage.
I had it displayed in my china cabinet as shown in photo 1 without a tray. The last photo shows a small waste bowl and tray added to the set, but it is NOT included. Please allow the photos to be the major part of the description; remember, condition, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder...
Y our eyes describe better than my words.. Condition: All pieces come polished and ready to use, display or store; they are wrapped in plastic bags which I have found save lots of "elbow grease" since it inhibits tarnishing--leave it stored in the bag and then a quick wash with silver cream does the job just before using.
Feedback: I value your feedback! I strive to give you a GREAT product at a GREAT price with an overall GREAT shopping experience. Please allow me the courtesy to work with you if you have any issues or concerns. I will do my best to resolve any concern I may have overlooked!
