DESCRIPTION

Antique 19th Century Indian Solid Silver three-piece tea set, comprising of teapot, sugar bowl and cream jug, each spherical body is profusely and beautifully decorated with the typically Kashmiri stylized foliage known as the Islamic-inspired "shawl pattern".

The set is exceptionally heavy and features a stunning craftsmanship, the bowl and the jug are richly parcel gilt and rest on three ball-shaped feet, the teapot rests on three cast claw-form feet.

Each piece is Hallmarked with Continental import marks "A800" (for Belgian silver, acid tested shows a 800+ standard), plus another silversmith / retailer's mark (GM with a hammer in between). The Belgian marks are in use after 1942, but the set originally dates to between 1880-1900.
