An exquisite five-piece tea and coffee service executed entirely in .925 sterling silver by Whiting Manufacturing of New York. Renowned for their quality, the present set is no exception: note the exquisite chasing and chiseling of the cast elements. Each handle and leg shows elaborate development of the Georgian motif with brilliant scrolling acanthus complete with minute hammered texturing. The joinery is flawless. The set has never been monogrammed and presents beautifully with a high-polish surface. As always, we have cleaned the surfaces entirely through hand-polishing and without any machine buffing, preserving the overall soft surface patina throughout.Weights and dimensions:Coffee pot: 34.77 ozt; 7 3/4" H x 11" W x 6 1/2" D (base)Tea pot: 30.29 ozt; 6 1/8" H x 11" W x 6 7/8" D (base)Sugar: 16.33 ozt; 5 1/4" H x 8 3/4" W x 4 7/8" D (base)Creamer: 8.82 ozt; 3 3/4" H x 5 1/4" W x 4 1/8" DWaste pot: 9.41 ozt; 3 1/2" H x 4 1/8" W x 4 1/8" DTotal weight: 99.62 oztCondition Report:All elements polished only by hand (not machine buffed); [coffee pot] tiny dents and divots to body visible under raking light (with handle on left, the polished spherical body above the legs) and evidence perhaps of some dent removal; to the right of the handle a tiny dent over four tiny abrasions; other tiny scuffs and abrasions to the body;[tea pot] very minor abrasions to the spherical body, including "speck" dents, very light surface scuffs; [sugar] very good condition, specks of abrasion; [waste pot] excellent condition, no noted flaws; [creamer] one minute surface dimple, minor specks of abrasion.
