Lookin' to Recycle the followin' to a new home:
1 Vintage or Modern (might be Antique, research yields very little) EPNS India SILVERPLATED TEA SET - Beautifully etched? and footed Teapot, lidded Sugar Bowl & Creamer. Teapot and Sugar bowl have BLACK lid handles and the TEAPOT has the Same Black substance segmenting the handle. (I don't believe it is wood, might be glass ? stone ? plastic? or something else)
The sugar bowl measures about 4.25" tall (to tip of lid top), tea pot is 9.625" tall (to tip of lid top),.
Marked on Bottom of each Piece: E.P.N.S. INDIA (with a letter "K" inside a SHIELD SHAPE, each side of shield is a Fleur-de-Lis.). The Teapot (in addition to above markings), also has a number 35 on base above mark.
Condition: Very Good with evidence of a Recent polishing (I wish auction houses wouldn't do that, as they did not remove all the polish. I used my finger to verify what I see is removable and it will cleanup just fine). I see very little evidence of use, no scratches to not. LOVELY LOOKING SET!
NOTE: Electro Plated Nickel Silver, E.P.N.S., is highly polished brass plated with nickel and then with Silver of varying thickness and then polished again to give a very rich look of silver. The thickness of silver may vary from less than one micron (commercial), to one micron (discerning), to several microns. Electroplating plants are used for this purpose.
