Silver tea set worth £82,000
It is a five-piece tea service including a sugar bowl, teapot, a coffee pot, tray, and a creamer. What adds immense worth to all these five pieces is the material used and the way it has been used. Hand hammered silver and mammoth tusk handles make every piece even more special.
The enhanced, organic and sculptural design of the tray, teapot, and coffee pot owes to the wrapped natural rattan accents. Other unique feature that further add to the elegance and value of this tea service is a sliding door opening on the teapot and coffeepot. You are supposed to slide the door to add water to the pots.
