THIS PERSIAN SILVER TEA SET DATES BACK TO
APPROXIMATELY 1840'S. IT WAS IN KING FAROUK'S
PALACE TREASURES COLLECTION SOLD BY SOUTHEBY'S
IN 1952\ FOR THE EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT COUP WHICH
HAD DETHRONED FAROUK AND HAD TAKEN POWER
OVER EGYPT.. (Heirs have consigned this for sale. They
have another set which was brought to USA by their
ancestors in 1887, which we will be listing later. There
had been confusion over which set is from King Farouk's
collection, and which set was brought from Europe in 1887.
AS OF NOW, it seems THIS set is the Farouk owned set.
THE TEA POT AND CREAMER have ANTELOPE &
PEACOCK AND OTHER ANIMAL FIGURES ENGRAVED
ALL OVER . The handles are overlaid with ivory, bone, or olive
wood (to insulate from heat). The MOUTH OF THE SPOUTS
IS IN THE FORM OF A DRAGON'S MOUTH.
The tray is engraved with hundreds of intricate flora
designs. The tray edge is nicely rolled and raised about
1/3" above the tray bottom The silver has not been thoroughly
polished. The PERSIAN SILVER WORKERS USE A METAL
With A PORTION OF TWO OTHER METALS, SO IS NOT
QUITE THE SAME AS WHAT WE IN THE WEST CALL STERLING.

WIDE. TEA POT: 7 1/2" TALL. CREAM POT: 5 7/8" tALL
CONDITION: EXCELLENT ANTIQUE, except that the finial on
