This set of three pieces is comprised of a tea pot, a sugar bowl, and a milk jug, all wrought from silver inlaid with lustrous green malachite in a wonderful Italian Art Deco style that evokes the 1930s. Each piece is designed in a striking, angular manner, with strong clean lines, corners, and points predominating.
Each of the pieces is stamped ‘800’ and marked with an indistinct maker’s mark.
