There is an interesting story and Provenance to this extremely ornate, high quality Georgian sterling silver Tea and coffee set. The set was purchased in the London Silver Vaults by Mrs. Ray Crock, the first wife of the famed Ray Crock founder of McDonald's Food Industries. Price of course was no object to Mrs. Crock, who had excellent taste and wanted only the finest Georgian silver available. When she found this set in the London Vaults it was a 3 piece set missing the creamer. She would only accept a 4 piece set. Thus a search was undertaken to find a suitable creamer to match the set. The creamer was found and the set complete. This is the first time in more than 175 years that this set has been offered for sale to the world on the internet. This is an extremely ornate set showing beautiful design and composition with high relief sculptured floral and foliate designs. It has almost a melon shape to the sections.
