A rare Newcastle Georgian, George IV, complete silver tea service of rounded form with moulded floral rims and knop on circular spreading pedestal feet. All of the handles are leaf capped and reeded. Each piece has an identical monogram.
The teapot features ivory heat insulators. Please check that the importation of antique ivory is allowed into your country, if ordering from outside of the U.K.
Condition is very good with light surface wear. There will be signs of use. The teapot has movement in the flush hinge once it is opened. This is common with flush hinges and does not affect its function. There is a postcode etched into the base of each piece by a previous owner as theft protection. The sugar bowl and creamer have worn gilt linings.
Each piece is hallmarked for Newcastle 1826 by William Lister I. The makers marks are rubbed on the sugar bowl. The interior of the teapot lid is part hallmarked.
