Description and Details
This three-piece solid silver Georgian tea set was made by Robert Peppin in London, 1824.
Being made in the latter period of the Georgian era, all three pieces comprise an array of ornamental chasing featuring floral motifs and a "melon-shaped" overall design.
The teapot presents a lovely oriental figural finial with great chinoiserie influences. The handle and finial are firmly applied to the body with continued chasing and an acanthus leaf thumb-piece. The interior remains very clean and leak-free.
The sugar bowl and milk pitcher also feature the same "melon-shaped" exterior with ornate chasings throughout. The flared rim of both pieces meticulously leads to the gilt interior which remains in excellent condition with no gilding loss. The gilding not only contrasts the silver colour aesthetically but provides a layer of protection from the contents inside, reducing rust and oxidation forming inside the silverware.
The hallmarks are fully and clearly present on all pieces and have matching marks throughout. On the right-hand side of each piece, a small monogram "JR" is present.
