Charming and unusual Victorian silver tea service with original tray and wirework frame to hold the set. The simple oblong tray has a raised edge and two handles. The tea set is a plain round design with a woven wicker handle to the teapot.

The bachelor tea service is a charming set of antique silver, being simply a smaller version of a full-size tea set, but intended for one person. Occasionally mistaken as part of a child's tea service, they are deliberately petite and were created long before the advent of the tea bag!
