Description
Boulenger - Tea / coffee set (5 items) (5) - Empire - Silverplate
France - Early 20th century

Empire-style coffee/tea set in silvered metal, includes a coffee pot, a coffee maker, a sugar bowl, a milk jug, and the set's large tray. All the items are marked "Boulenger".
The four items are ovoid in shape with four lions' feet and ebony handles, enhanced by pretty floral rosettes.
The other Empire decorative elements - such as the friezes of water leaves on the sugar bowl, the lion-headed spouts, and the swan head handle of the tray - are finely crafted and give the service great importance as do the number of pieces in excellent condition. There is a small scratch on the tray, it is barely visible.
