A extremely rare mahogany-cased sterling silver gilt mounted glass tea service by London silversmith William Rudkins. Each piece is of exceptional quality and includes a tea caddy, jug, and caddy bowl; each with square pyramid-shaped cut-glass sides, radiating design to the bases, and silver gilt reeded band. The jug features an interesting Greek key handle. Engraved floral swag escutcheon. Contains a pair of matching silver gilt sugar tongs unmarked.

The Box itself is veneered in Mahogany with a chequered tulip wood cross banding all round, the top has a gilded carry handle matching the silver gilt service.

This extremely rare Georgian boxed tea service comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.
