Antique Vintage Rogers.Smith And Co 200L Silver Plate Tea Set
Antique Vintage Rogers.Smith And Co 200L Silver Plate Tea Set.
Exquisite antique/vintage Rogers.Smith and Co etched floral silver plate tea set. This amazing set features a tea pot, 2 double handled sugar bowls and a lidded dish with a perforated plate in the center. I assume this is to keep hot water in the bottom and steam or warm an item on the perforated plate. The set had some leftover wrappings that looked like tissue and cotton which when stored, I'm guessing it got wet and left a hardened residue on the surface. I've washed the 3 pieces that had the tissue still on it but these pieces still need the remaining residue removed. The darker bowl did not get cleaned as it did not have any tissue or residue present.
There's some very minor spots where the plating is chipped. Most is on the inside of the lidded dish with very minimal chipping on the outer plating of all pieces.
The bottom of each piece is stamped "Guaranteed by Rogers.Smith and Co Meriden, CT 200L USA." The teapot is the only one with the number 6 stamped prior to the USA
