This listing is for a hand-wrought melon form three piece sterling silver tea set made in Mexico by Lindo. All three pieces are hallmarked on the bottom Mexico Lindo, Plata 925.
925 is the silver standard for sterling - 92.5% silver. The teapot is 8 1/4" tall, 9 1/2" from spout to handle, and 5 1/2 in diameter. The lid & hinge are tight and the insulators are intact without wobble.The there is no wobble when it sits on a flat surface. The cream jug is 6 1/8" tall, 4 3/4" from spout to handle, and 3 3/4 in diameter. The sugar bowl with removable lid is 5 3/4" tall, 6 1/4" handle to handle and 4 in diameter. The lid fits nicely and there is the very slightest of wobbles when it sits on a flat surface. This set is made of very heavy gauge silver and the total weight for all three pieces is 68.77 troy ounces. Hand-wrought - so it has tool marks and some minor flaws. There are no distracting dings or dents and very little signs of use.
I have lightly polished this set (whew) but it could use a more thorough polishing. On all three pieces at the widest point there is a line which is likely where the top half of the piece is joined to the bottom half. There are some flaws along this line inside of the grooves.The sugar bowl has 5 spots, the creamer has 3 spots and the teapot has 5 spots. There are a couple of other spots on the sugar bowl that look like they were patched. All of these spots are very minor and are imperfections from the crafting process.
