Lovely Thursday isn't it?
I can not believe how quick the week has gone. i hope you are all enjoying yourselves. it might be dull outside but its not that cold and its not raining :D.
I am also really happy because i have some more invites to some vintage events. Busy Bee- that's how i roll and i really enjoy them, its amazing the things you learn and find there that i love sharing with everyone. My family got tired of me going on about this things ... Hence the blogging... :D,
I would like to share with you a few more of my #VintageFinds or #AntiqueFinds, that i bought during my Car-Booty visits a while ago, i meant to blog it but i have been a little rushed off my feet. This particular find is a Gorgeous silver plated footed Tea set comprising of Tea pot, Milk jug and Big Sugar bowl. I found it at the well known Capital Car Boot in London. I love the way all three items have ornate feet and intricate leaf patterns on the body, its absolutely stunning. I was quite surprised no one had bought it before me since it was towards the end of the car-booty. According to the seller a lot of people were asking about it. I did see similar Tea-Sets on eBay, unfortunately other bidder won the auctions. I was hopping to get it for less, unfortunately my bargaining power was low that day, I can still say it was a fair price.
I can't quite see clearly the Stamps on the back, but i think it reads as, ( W & H S EP England 1395 1/2 ) on both the sugar and milk jug, the stamp on the teapot -(W & H S EP 1395 1/2 4 - inside an oval shape there is the words Patent no.19759 Handle). What i know is that the marks show that the teaset is manufactured by Walker and Hall Sheffield and EP- means that it is electroplated i also know that George Elkington and Henry Elkington were awarded first patent for electroplating in 1840s. I am hoping to find more information about Set.
