REED & BARTON Antique TEA/CHOCOLATE SET Seed Pod COCOA BEAN FINIAL Silverplate
An antique silverplated Reed & Barton Tea or Chocolate Set dating to the late 1800's.
We are pleased to present this antique Reed & Barton Tea or Chocolate Set for your consideration. It is their pattern #1979 which features Tulips, Greek Key, and a Cocoa Bean finial on the Tea or Chocolate Pot. Four pieces are included as follows:
Tea or Chocolate Pot. It stands 8 inches high and has a lid attached with a hinge. The inside is clean, while the exterior only has some slight flattening in the area where a monogram would be placed, but too shallow to be described as a dent or bump. It weighs 1 pound 12 ounces. We rate its condition as very good.
Creamer. It stands 7 inches high and weighs 10 ounces. A few tiny bumps are noted on the inside near the rim, but insignificant. We rate its condition as very good.
Sugar Bowl. It measures 6-1/4 inches in height and weighs 1 pound 5 ounces. The lid was misplaced when we first listed this, but it has since been located (we've added the lid to our first two pictures). There are a few scratches in the bottom of the interior, but the metal is in good shape. The exterior has a slight dent (more of a flat area) near the space for a monogram, but shallow and not very noticeable. We rate its condition as very good.
Slop Bowl. It measures 4-1/2 inches high and weighs 11 ounces. The interior has a dark patina, but could be polished to give a brighter appearance. The exterior is shiny and dent free. We rate its condition as very good.
All of the pieces are marked REED & BARTON on their undersides, along with the pattern number 1979. They have been polished and are mostly free of tarnish, but could look even better with a bit more detail work. The combined weight of the set is 4 pounds 6 ounces.
This would make a charming set for Tea, Coffee, or Chocolate!
