Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a lovely vintage Sterling Silver 4-piece coffee (tea) set in the FAIRFAX pattern made by the William Durgin Silver Company. The Fairfax pattern of flatware was issued in 1910.The design features an elongated octagonal shape with an engraved Art Deco style monogram in the center with intertwined initials "A C W". The handles have heat spacers and all handles have tight joints.
All Durgin silver is excellent quality and is highly desired and this set is unusual with the engraved design. The set has a combined weight of 1730 grams. (1) Coffee pot (marked 1 3/4 Pints) - measures 7 1/4" high (at handle), 7 3/4" high (spout to handle) and 3 deep. (2) Sugar - measures 3 1/4" high (at handle), 6 1/2" wide (handle to handle) and 3 3/8 deep. (3) Creamer (marked 1/2 Pint) - measures 2 3/4" high (at handle), 5 3/4" wide (spout to handle) and 2 3/4 deep.(4) Tray (marked "640") - measures 1" high, 15 1/4" long (handle to handle) and 11 1/8 wide (at center). Each piece of this nice set is in very good to excellent Estate condition with no noted flaws and reflecting only minor signs of normal wear. There are faint scratches on the tray from normal use and one tiny ding in the curve of one panel edge on the back of the coffee pot and another dent on the handle also on the back side. There is a slight wiggle in the hinge on the coffee pot, however, their is no sign of damage and hinge is secure with the lid opening and closing correctly. There is also a tiny ding in the curve of one panel edge on the back of the creamer and a couple of very faint dings on the rolled upper rim of both the creamer and sugar.
Each of these flaws is very minor and do not detract at all from the beauty of this set, however, they are called for accuracy. We at Antiques & Moore have been in the Antiques business for over 30 years and try to describe our items as accurately as possible.
