CASED SILVER TEA SET PRESENTED TO A BRITISH NAVAL OFFICER.
A very nice three piece silver hallmarked tea set comprising tea pot, sugar bowl and cream jug, matching hall marks for Birmingham 1905 and makers mark M & C, all three items are in mint condition. The tea pot has a very interesting Navel presentation inscription, LIEUT N.V. RASHLEIGH R.I.N.V.R, FROM THE NAVAL OFFICERS IN CHARGE AND ALL OFFICERS OF H.M.I.S ADYAR ON THE OCCASION OF HIS MARRAGE 10TH MARCH 1945, the reverse side is engraved with naval anchor and kings crown. Complete with large black leatherette presentation box, the velvet interior is fitted for all three silver items. A very impressive set.
Comes with some research concerning Lieutenant Rashleigh. Near mint condition
