We are pleased to introduce this wonderful silverplated tea set from the Standard Silver Company of Toronto, Canada. Done in an art deco style, each of these creamer, sugar bowl, and tea pot is decorated with the Greek key pattern and footed base. It was one of the silver companies that was eventually taken over by the Meriden Britannia Company of Hamilton, Ontario in the mid 1920s. The Meriden Silver Company originated in Connecticut, USA.This company used variations of former trade marks that were used by the Standard Silver Company which attested to the quality and reputation of the Standard Silver Company, established in Toronto and other regions of Ontario. The pieces have the following measurements. Tea Pot - 9 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 8 inches Sugar - 7 1/2 x 5 x 4 1/2 inches Creamer 6 1/4 x 4 1/4 x 3 inches. Together, the items weigh 2 5/8 pounds. Because these bear the mark from the original Standard Silver Company, these items date no later than 1925. As a result, they have the normal wear one would expect with items of this age. There are scrapes from utensil use, though these will be greatly diminished once the set is polished. The tea pot has one area below the handle where the silverplate has come off as well as the top of the spout, but this is not uncommon with items of this age. The lids on the tea pot and sugar bowl fit snugly onto the pieces. For a stylish and affordable tea set, this lot of Greek Key patterned silverware from the original Standard Silver Company is a great way to go!
