# 4843. A Japanesque / Aesthetic American Revival tea service. c. 1870's. Consisting of a large water urn (brass spout with ivory handles) which is 17" tall; two lidded pots one 11.5" tall and one 10.5" tall; a creamer, covered sugar, waste bowl PLUS an extra lidded pot 11.5" tall. There are 8 pieces in all. Marker: form number 960 - Taunton Silver Plate Co. Quadruple Plate. The extra lidded pot is marked the same with the exception it is Triple Plate. There is no tray. Condition: the set with the exception of the extra lidded pot has been re-silvered and the urn has a burner replaced and does not exactly fit into the open burner/font slot. The extra lidded pot has the original worn plate and the design is different on the single pot. The decorations on the service include fans, birds, flowers and three dimensional Japanese characters. The figures on the water urn are almost 5" tall and depict a geisha wearing a kimono holding a fan. This set could have easily been in the exhibition "The Japan Idea Art and Life in Victorian America" hosted by the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford Connecticut a number of years ago. The catalogue was edited by William Hosley. Price for this service is $2,950.00.
