Welcome to William Sharpe Antiques. Here today for your consideration we have this superb Victorian sterling silver bachelors teaset, made by William Hutton & Sons of London, c-1895. This wonderful set includes teapot, sugar bowl and milk jug which are all assayed for 1895. The pattern is simple, and relies heavily on shape to carry it through, with very delicate design elements throughout. Condition is good overall, with no major damage to note and only minimal signs of use, obvious with the exceptionally clean gilding remaining inside the teapot and sugar bowl.
The handle of the teapot appears to have had a professional repair at some point, and each piece has the usual scratches and bruises from a life well lived. There is no monogram or family crest evident on this set.
This stunning set would make a perfect gift, or splendid addition to your home collection. The teapot stands about 10cm tall measuring about 20cm handle-to-spout. The milk jug stands 8.5cm tall, with the sugar bowl measuring 12.5cm handle-to-handle. Unpacked, the set weighs in at an impressive 412gms. To see my other items!
