Description: This is a stunningly elegant tea set by Poole in the "Old English" pattern (see additional photos below) . It has been rank as one of the most elegant ever, Each piece is hallmarked on the bottom "EPCA, OLD ENGLISH, POOLE, 5000" Poole was established in Taunton Massachusetts in 1893. Set would date from approx the 1950's and is the older heavily plated type...not like the light weight pieces of today. The tray alone is very heavy and thickly detailed. The set altogether weight about 18 pounds which gives you an idea at the quality. This set belonged to my mother who had it sitting on a serving cart in the dining room for many years. She kept very good care of it over the years and I will pack it with the same care for you. I would rate this set as Very Fine Estate Condition...meaning that it shows minor scratches, signs of light use, minimal damage, patterns and relief is crisp, well finished. T is a very small ding in the creamer but nothing major at all. The interior of the tea pot shows some wear but the other pieces are in great condition on the inside. ALL 4 PIECES SHOW NO SILVER LOSS OR PITTING OF ANY KIND THAT I CAN DETECT! The tray measures 25 ½" handle to handle and width is 16" with a height of 2 ½"...and is very heavy! The pot measures 10" handle to spout and is 10" tall to the top of the lid. The sugar is 7 ½" from handle to handle and is 7" tall to top of lid. The creamer is 6 ¼" from spout to handle and the height is 4 ½".

It will be shipped with loving care for you to now enjoy!
