From our Silver collection, we are pleased to offer this Novelty Art Deco Tea Server. The tea server cast in silver plate and shaped as a squat form jug with a viewing window to the front below the word Tea in capital letters. The jug opens from the top by sliding the lid across the handle allowing the user to fill the jug full of loose leaf tea. The tea then fills through to the bottom of the jug where another viewing window can be seen. The user then tips the jug and a single serving will be administered from a small spout at the bottom of the front. The server is truly a novelty way to both store and serve loose leaf tea! The base is hallmarked EPNS A1 along pro pat, 25646/22. A great and unusual novelty piece dating to the art deco period circa 1930.
