Description

Direct from A Chateau near Tours France, A Truly Magnificent, Original French Art Deco, 6 pc. Sterling Silver Tea / Coffee Set with Serving Tray by one of France's Premier Silversmiths "Tetard Frères'", Includes 6 Anti-Tarnish Wraps - Circa 1920s. Edmond Tétard took over the business of the renowned master silversmith Émile Hugo in 1880 and registered his mark in the August of that year giving the workshop address as 4 rue Béranger, north of the Marais in central Paris. He was a talented craftsman and his work soon came to the attention of both clients and his contemporaries. The firm specialized in creating beautiful sets of flatware and other table ware such as coffee and tea sets, candelabra plus decorative trays and urns. All the pieces featured elegant proportions and were finely wrought, many embellished with decorative details and hand engraving. He exhibited at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889 where he was awarded a gold medal for his outstanding designs and fine quality silverware, much of which was influenced by Rococo style. Têtard’s pieces were highly sought after by a discerning clientele and he became a favorite of the French aristocracy. The house reached its peak at the Colonial Exhibition of 1931 where it won 10 medals for their amazing sterling silver and vermeil creations. This magnificent sterling silver tea set in their classic art deco pattern is a stunning example of the quality and craftsmanship for which the firm is internationally known.

The stunning teapot measures roughly 19 cm. high, 24.50 cm. across from the outer edge of the handle to the tip of the spout and weights an amazing 725 grams.
