Rare Tiffany Coffee and Tea Set from Circa 1865 - Rarely Available for Sale
Dating back to the Civil War, this antique Tiffany tea & coffee service set is a museum quality masterpiece.
The set comprises: a Coffeepot, Teapot, Kettle-on Stand with Burner, Covered Sugar Bowl, Waste Bowl, Creamer, Two-Handled Tray, Hot Water Pot, and a Tea Caddy. Each piece is marked with Tiffany’s 550 Broadway hallmark.
All pieces have the pattern # 1516, with the exception of the following pieces: The tray #993, the hot water pot #1620, and the tea caddy #1677. The pots are of compressed spherical form with die-rolled band around the midsection, the upper body hand engraved with scroll form and geometric motifs. The set is very unusual in that it not only has the extra pieces, but it also has a tea caddy included as well. Each piece is engraved with a scrolling entwined monogram inside a circular cartouche form reserve, the opposing side with an engraved crest with a coronet above. The set is in good condition.
The set weighs an astounding of 300+ Troy Ounces.
