An Antique American Japanisme Mixed Metals Three Piece Tea Service
This delightful set, in the popular Japonisme style of the 1880s, features decorative foliage and insects applied over a finely hand-hammered surface. The design number '439' just below the maker's mark on each piece indicates this set was made between 1880 and 1882.
