Description and Details 

We are delighted to offer this spectacular solid sterling silver Irish tea set/service made by R W Smith of Dublin in 1837.

Made during the final year of the Georgian era, the tea set features a highly decorative, impressive and extravagant design with a superb degree of finesse in the craftsmanship, quality and finish of the set.

All three pieces have an applied-cast silver top wreath of interlinked acanthus leaves which flawlessly conjoin the embossed and chased motifs of flowers and further acanthus leaves below.

The body of each piece presents a high contrast texture with a sense of depth that is optically achieved by the polished high points of the flowers juxtaposing the stippled background which creates a darker shadow effect. 

The overall shape of the set is in the form of a 'melon-shaped' tea set with further embellishments on all sides. The teapot lid features a realistic grape finial which aids in the opening of the lid.

Above: An distinct separation between the mirror-like finish of the high-points are contrasted by the darker shadows, impressively achieved by the skilful stippling of the background.  

The interior of each piece is fully gilded with the gilding remaining in overall good condition. 

The base of all three pieces feature further applied cast feet featuring a continued acanthus leaf design. 

A cartouche with an engraved crest is present on the side of each piece. 

A full set of Irish hallmarks are present on the base of each piece

        Condition

        Good Condition -  The tea set is in overall good antique condition. Please note, the front left foot the teapot has some slight misshaping (last photo) and causes a very slight wobble upon placing on a flat surface. This is mentioned for accuracy and does not detract from the overall aesthetics nor its useability as the teapot still sits well with no concerns of spilling. There are no leaks, repairs or cracks. Please refer to the photographs to examine the condition in further detail.
