AN ANTIQUE HAND WROUGHT LION RAMPANT CRESTED, VICTORIAN ENGLISH STERLING SILVER REPOUSSE, THREE (3) PIECE TEA SET, LONDON, ENGLAND, CIRCA 1854-55 by GEORGE RICHARDS. 47.5 OUNCES OF LUSTRUOUS OLD, HAND WORKED ENGLISH SILVER!
(Coffee pot saleed separately - please see our other items)
Under a spectacular hand crafted floral finial sits a spectacular set of silver in a timeless Georgian form but with all the Victorian flourish and exhuberance that could possibly be imparted onto the silver.
There are rococo scrolls, Neo-classical acanthus leaves. Flutes and creases. Diapering and chase work. It's engraved, cross-hatched and stippled. Pretty much all that could have been done... has been.
The maker, also seen with the mark of GRE (George Richards Elkington) is noted in Jackson's as a maker of superb quality! As is evident in this beautifully decorated, hand wrought tea set.
The crested / heraldic armorial reserve displays a stunning hand engraved lion rampant. Surmounted with a banner that's inscribed in latin:
NOBILIS EST IRA LEONIS (The Lion is Noble / Noble is the Wrath of the Lion).
Historically, this armorial has been linked with the Stuart / Stewart Clan of Scotland. All things are possible for pieces of this age but it's beyond the scope of our listing to investigate further. If you have Scottish lineage or kin with that surname... it may be of interest.
FINE estate condition. No dings or dents. Handles are nice and firm. The ivory insulators are nicely warmed from age and seat firmly. The lids are not loose. They seat properly. The pieces sit level. And... the set is clean. It's a very clean piece. Only some tarnish here or there. A benefit of a clean set like this is that you'll be able to control the patination, over time, as you please.
This sale includes 3 pieces weighing approximately 47.5 ounces:
Tea Pot - 8.25" high x 10" across, 25.6 ounces.
Sugar Bowl - 5" high x 7.5" across, 13.6 ounces.
