Coming from Martin Hall, a maker that was originally formed in Sheffield in 1820 and who exhibited in the Great Exhibition of 1851, we have a five piece antique silver tea and coffee set of a quality that you will not see very often.
This stunning English sterling silver tea and coffee service comprise a teapot, sugar bowl, cream jug, coffee pot and tray. All pieces bear clear hallmarks for Sheffield 1874 and also the makers mark of Martin Hall - one of the renowned Hall family of silversmiths.
All five items are of the very best quality and feature copious amounts of crisp, bright, cut engraved decoration with beaded borders and elegant finials to both the teapot and the coffee pot.
It is especially nice to be able to offer this tea and coffee service with its original and matching silver tray which adds a considerable amount of style and class to the service when it is used. We appreciate however that for many owners this set is likely to be given pride of place in a display cabinet, perhaps being used on only the most special of special occasions.
We offer this lovely Martin Hall tea and coffee service for sale in excellent condition with clear hallmarks and no dings, dents or signs of repair. We invite you to view the gallery of photographs in order to confirm this and to see for yourself just how desirable this service is.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
