We are offering a very fine, high quality Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Teapot And Coffee Pot Service With Sugar Bowl and Cream Pitcher in the Half Reed Design, which we believe was produced in the first quarter of the 20th Century. Our vintage Barker Bros. silverplate tea and coffee service - which is in a beautiful, clearly incised Half-Reed design - consists of the following pieces:
One Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Coffee Pot measuring 10" in height from its base to the top of its finial, and 10-3/4" in width from the tip of its handle to the tip of its spout;
One Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Teapot measuring 7" in height from its base to the top of its finial, and 11" in width from the tip of its handle to the tip of its spout;
One Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Sugar Bowl measuring 3-7/8" in height;
One Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Cream Pitcher measuring 3-7/8" in height, and
One Vintage Wm Rogers Silverplate Tray measuring 24" by 14-3/4".
Although we did not find this Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Tea And Coffee Service with its original tray, we have paired it with a lovely, vintage silverplate tray produced by Wm. Rogers with a decorative border design which complements the Half-Reed design of the Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Tea And Coffee Service.
The Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Teapot And Coffee Pot Service With A Sugar Bowl And Cream Pitcher In The Half-Reed Design, and Vintage Silverplate WM. Rogers tray are in very nice estate found condition as seen in our photographs, with no large dents, cracks, abrasions or repairs to the metal, and with the wooden finials and handles in exceptionally fine condition.
This bright and lovely Vintage Barker Bros. Silverplate Tea And Coffee Service was made by Barker Bros., which was founded in 1801 by Mary Barker in Birmingham, England. Each piece in the Vintage Silverplate Barker Bros. Tea And Coffee Service set bears the Barker Bros. hallmark of 3 stars inside a clover leaf, with the initials 'EP' to the left and the initials 'NS' to the right of the hallmark. Of course, EPNS stands for 'electro-plated nickel silver'. The vintage silverplate coffee pot and teapot have a lovely engraved initial on one side, which we believe is the letter, 'G'. However, others have disagreed with us regarding the letter, and who are we to argue? You would be well-justified in regarding the engraving as a lovely embellishment to an already stunning silver service.
