Antique German silver plated 4-piece teapot, sugar bowl, cream/milk jug & tea tray set by the renowned WMF. Beautiful simple and elegant hexagonal shape with reed banded detail. Condition: Overall it is in very good condition. The silver plate is largely excellent.When you inspect, you can see subtle patches of loss, mainly to the cream jug, but these are fairly subtle and happen to be mostly on one side. On the sugar bowl, you can see subtle losses along the corners and a few patches also, again mainly to one side, so both pieces display very well. Additionally the base metal is very light in colour. The tray and teapot have no plate loss at all. The tray has scratches to the bed. No visible scratches to any of the other pieces. The whole set has a deep shine and is of lovely quality. There is no damage to any of the pieces and no dings or dents. Marked to the bases of all items as follows.
