ANTIQUE STERLING BALTIMORE SILVER CO. TEA SET BARBOUR SILVER CO.ANTIQUE STERLING TEA SET BARBOUR SILVER CO. Beautiful antique sterling tea set, by The Barbour Silver Company, Hartford, CT. Later, they became part of International Silver and though the BSC initial mark was still used, International changed the arrangement of the letters/initials.
This set is in overall wonderful condition. There are 4 pieces, including the sugar bowl lid. All 3 main pieces are fully marked on the bottom. It features a lovely and dainty etched design of flowers, leaves, and swirls. The teapot, sugar, and creamer are all mono'd with script LR in a cartouche.
The creamer has just one cartouche. The teapot and sugar both have a coutouche on the front and another on the back, but only one on each is mono'd.Teapot handle is ebony, I assume. All pins are present, tight, and functional on the teapot. Teapot lid sits flush on pot, as does the lid on the sugar bowl. I found just a couple tiny, minor dings on each piece, but they are hard to see with the floral engraving design. All 3 main pieces sit level on their bases. 3"T without lid; 4.5"T with lid. Ons are welcome, so don't hesitate to ask if you need more info! Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing. The item "ANTIQUE STERLING TEA SET BARBOUR SILVER CO.
