A Rare Sterling Silver Tea Set by Christopher Dresser

This very rare sterling silver tea set was designed by Christopher Dresser in 1880, after he visited Japan. Christopher Dresser was incredibly ahead of his time, which is apparent in his clean, modern designs.

Seen by many as the father of modern design, his work is very well respected and valued, which makes it desirable among collectors. Examples of this set in any material are rare, but exceptionally so in hallmarked sterling silver. This is the only example I have ever seen, outside of a museum.

Nested inside the teapot is a sugar pot and cream jug.

The bottom of the teapot bares a Victorian registration lozenge. It was produced by Hukan and Heath in London 1880, and retailed by T. White Bond Street.

The length from handle to spout is 18 centimetres (7.1 inches), and the height is 8.5 centimetres (3.3 inches).
