1830s William 4th 4 Piece Sterling Silver Tea Service. Joseph and John Angell and others.

$5,200.00 spectacular 4 pieces


This impressive William 4th tea service is a composite, collected long ago, possibly since new. Silver was very expensive, and there are plenty of sets where the pieces were made a year or years apart as the money was available. All have London hallmarks. The teapot (1831) and coffee pot (1832) are by Joseph and (nephew) John Angell. The impressive and heavy creamer and sucrier (1833) are by EC, whose is recorded, but whose identity is still unknown. The coffee pot is 21.5 cm tall. The teapot is 16cm tall. The sucrier is 20 cm wide. The total weight is 2278 grams. The opulent but short style of William IVth is quite distinctive and forms a bridge between the Gorgeous Georgians and many strange styles of Victoria's long, long, long reign.
