The tasteful tea and coffee service was a key attribute for any stylish household around the turn of the last century, retaining its place in upscale home decor during the following decades. These metal objects exemplifying this luxury period tableware show various design approaches in silver and brass that made their way from England to Denmark and then to Switzerland. Designers regarded such exquisite handcrafted items as the better alternative to mass-produced goods.
