This gorgeous tea set dates from 1897 to 1904. It was made by Richfield Plate Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. The pattern is #3678 and the style is Edwardian or English Arts and Crafts.
It has clean lines and isn't overly ornate. These pieces belonged to my Grandmother and are in beautiful condition.
The set includes : 1 - Serving Pot 1 - Creamer 1 - Sugar with Lid 3 - Anti-Tarnish Storage Bags The storage bags are special anti-tarnish, soft cotton zippered bags and they really do seem to work. They protect from scratches and the pieces were as shiny as you see them here when I took them out! Don't wash the bags or you'll remove the anti-tarnish properties. Markings on each piece : RICHFIELD PLATE CO. 3678, 6 Antique silver-plate from this era is most commonly marked with the words Quadruple Plate.This means there are four layers of silver plate on the piece. The term was rarely used after about 1900. Pot - 8" tall to top of finial, 8.5" wide spout to handle, 4 diameter at widest. Creamer - 3.5" tall, 4.5" wide spout to handle, 3.5 diameter. Sugar with Lid - 5.25" tall to top of finial, 5.5" handle to handle, 3.5 diameter.
There is no damage to any of the pieces. The only thing I'd note is that there are some streaks inside the creamer.I didn't try to polish them so I don't know if they would buff out. In any event, you really don't notice it. Also, the bottom of a couple pieces have some pitting. This occured during manufacture and again, you wouldn't normally notice it. A glamorous service for tea, coffee, or hot chocolate! Also looks stunning on display. See my other listing for more silver pieces.
