Antique, silverplate, tea set/ coffee service with portrait medallions, mid 1800s, by Meriden Britannia. This set is in great condition and includes coffee pot, teapot, hot water pot, sugar bowl with lid, creamer and waste bowl. Each piece has an Aesthetic design and is adorned with medallions with different portrait faces of different knights/ goddesses. The tops of the legs are lion heads which narrow down to horse hooves. The handles and finials are overlapping leaves. One side of each piece is monogrammed what looks to be "CGM", but blends beautifully with the design so don't worry if those aren't your initials. Absolutely stunning pieces in great condition.

This set is in great antique condition especially for its age and use. May have typical signs of age and use such as light surface scratches, polish residue, etc. Part of one of the wingnut's wing is broken off (screws to underside of the finial), but is still functional (see pics). The inside of the pots are very clean, with some lights staining, if any. The waste bowl has more staining (which is to be expected). No obvious damage.
