These lovely pieces have a silverplate - ivory type finish. They are decorated with chased flowers and leaves. The lids have a flower while the foot has intricate open cuts, making these very unusual pieces. This pattern is number 3100 per research, altho items are not marked that I can see. The Meriden Britannia company was founded in 1852 in Meriden, Connecticut.
In 1898 the company became part of International Silver Company. Meriden Britannia Company designs are included in many museums collections as they are such an integral part of USA silver plate history along with the unique designs they produced.
Their pieces are highly collectible and hard to find esp in good condition as they can date as far back as 171 years! I placed this set on the very lovely tray from Reed and Barton which is a very solid lovey designed tray and added a Gorham flower basket. The basket is perfect for a floral arrangement to holding napkins to perhaps candies. 1 - Coffee Pot measuring: 12.5" x 10" x 6. 1 - Tea Pot measuring: 11" x 10" x 6.
