Up for consideration is a vintage five piece silver on copper tea set by Birmingham Silver Co. An elegant full service set with the classically designed pieces crafted of substantial weight and size. From the high end estate of the original purchaser, the set has been well cared for and is in beautiful vintage condition. The silver plating is magnificent.
Bright with a clear and brilliant luster with the presence of only the slightest and expected light surface scratching. A few specks of oxidation are seen to the surface of the tray but these are not distracting and may polish away over time with gentle persistence. The interiors of each piece are clean and free of corrosion, showing slight evidence of only the occasional use. None of the copper base metal is seen bleeding through as is so prevalent to the interiors of vintage Birmingham pieces. No dents, dings, rub marks, plate loss, or other compromising imperfections are found.
The hinges operate as intended and the Birmingham hallmark is seen on the bottom of each piece. Wear is commensurate with age and history of use so please regard all photos as they form a descriptive part of the listing. Included are a 10" coffee pot, a 9" tea pot, a 6" covered sugar bowl, and a 4" cream pitcher, all on a footed double handled butlers tray measuring 26 from handle to handle.This is an impressive set of excellent quality that displays beautifully.
