A VERY ELEGANT, ORNATE AND LARGE. VICTORIAN SILVER PLATE TEA POT SET.We are pleased to offer a very beautiful and elaborately designed Silver Plate (Silverplate) Tea Set from our 40 Year Collection. By The Meriden Britannia Company which was established in 1867. This set is one of the grandest of the Victorian Renaissance Revival fancy Tea Set with framed etched Bird of Paradise on one side and wheat plants on the other side. The set is marked on the underside with the Meriden Britannia pattern #1883. Please review the photos, since they form part of the description.
The Tea pot is monogramed with the word Sallie. The set has both shiny and mat silver plate finish to accentuate its beauty. The Tea Pot has a wonderful tulip like finial. This set reminds us of a fancy shaped castle.
Any description or photos will not do this set justice. This design and style are amazing and unquestionably gorgeous. Please note this listing for the 4 Pcs Meriden Britannia Set only. This large set consists of the Tea Pot approximately 12 1/2" Tall & 9 1/2" Wide, Waste Bowl / Urn 7 1/2" Tall & 7 1/4" wide, Sugar 6" Tall & 6" wide, and Creamer 6 3/4" Tall & 6" wide.

The set is very clean with some minor surface marks and scratches, please see photos. The set is in remarkably good antique condition considering its age.
Wow, the silver coverage is just wonderful with nice mat and bright finish with a few rub through. As we examine this set for listing, we noted additional silver plating at the Tea Pot lid hinge and the underside of the hinge. We don't believe this is an old repair, but part of the original manufacturing process. We will let you be the judge of that. It is a very large gorgeous set, and any possible condition issue don't detract from its elegance and beauty.
We have proudly displayed this set in our Victorian Parlor Cabinet for years. Don't miss this opportunity to own this elegant set. Sorry about the photos, since they are picking up reflections from the surrounding. We do our best to describe the item's condition and provide visual photos.
