Item Description

Possibly antique silver plated tea service consisting of a tea pot, a creamer (milk jug) sugar bowl and serving salver (tray). The silversmith could be Thomas Wilkinson & Sons / Pelican Works of Birmingham, England (T W & S makers mark stamped into the bottom of the tea pot, creamer and sugar). If correct, the age could be anywhere from 1832 - 1934. The tray appears to be from some other silversmith and could be American made.

Special Instructions

The images of the markers marks were taken from a Google search and not a direct photo from the bottom of the 3 items.  Can see a similar mark on each when using a magnifying glass but could not get a camera image to be in focus for a direct image.

A Google search also turned up a reference to the English silversmith Israel Sigmund Greenberg & Co. as a tea set of similar design.
