Lovely Antique Engraved Meriden Britannia Rogers SILVER PLATE Coffee TEA SET. This beautiful set is in very nice antique condition and features a 12" coffee or tea pot, a 7" cream pitcher, a 5" open sugar bowl, and a 9" covered waste container. The set has beautiful engravings in floral, scale, grape or berry, and leaf designs as well as acanthus leaf handles and beaded accents.
Although all of the pieces are the same design, three of the pieces are signed Meriden Britannia (patterns 1861 and 1835) and one is signed Rogers, Smith & Co. (pattern 1835), likely because Meriden Britannia took over Rogers, Smith in 1862, during the height of the Civil War. I have given the set a basic cleaning and light polishing and while the set displays beautifully it does have some condition issues. The finish is uneven in several areas and I don't know that additional polishing will help.
There are a few light dents, the lid to the was is slightly bent, and there is an area at the foot of the tea pot that looks like it was slightly melted. The creamer pot had a gold wash on the inside that is pretty worn. All of the issues are pictured above and don't effect the function of this beautiful set. Please see all pictures for additional details.
