Today we are delighted to be offering for sale a gorgeous antique Manchester “S” monogram 4-pc coffee service!
This elegant coffee service, pattern number 788/783, features a timeless and traditional streamlined colonial-inspired design with a plain body adorned with a simple thin border and streamlined arabesque handles. The set is elegantly monogrammed with a bold and fanciful letter “S”. The pieces are crafted of fine 925 sterling silver; pieces are hallmarked on the back with the Manchester mark and “Sterling”.
The total weight of the set is 1588 grams (51 troy ounces).
The set is composed of the following pieces:
1 large oval tray – 16-1/8″ in length, 12-5/8″ in depth
1 coffee pot – 9″ in height, 8-3/8″ in length, 4-3/4″ in depth
1 sugar – 5-5/8″ in length, 3-3/8″ in diameter, 3-1/4″ in height
1 creamer – 5″ in length, 3-1/2″ in diameter, 3-1/4″ in height
Set presents beautifully and is in very good vintage condition, with surface wear/scuffing, tarnishing and patina commensurate with age and light use. There are a few small and light surface dings that can easily (and cheaply) be smoothed out by any jeweler: the tray has one small ding on its’ surface; sugar has a few very faint (and hard to notice) surface dings; creamer has two dings near spout; coffee pot has a ding on base of spout and handle is secure but rattles slightly.
