Silver Tea Sets – Classic and Beautiful

If you’re looking for a beautiful and special gift to give as a wedding present or special anniversary gift, you might want to consider a silver tea set. Tea sets are a beautiful and useful gift and a really special one in silver will be something to be passed down from generation to generation as a family heirloom.

Formal silver tea sets were originally used by wealthy families for serving tea to guests and were somewhat of a status symbol. These sets include a silver tea pot, cups and saucers, sugar bowl and milk jug. They also frequently included a silver tray which was used to carry all the items to the table.

If traditional Victorian style isn’t really your thing (or the style of the person you’re buying for), there are more options available these days. You can also buy more modern style tea sets with stylish simple lines that will look equally at home in a modern kitchen as they do in a traditionally styled home.

If you or someone close to you has a silver wedding anniversary coming up, a silver tea set could be the perfect gift. Silver is the traditional gift material for 25th wedding anniversaries – truly an occasion for celebration. A tea set will be treasured by any tea lover and as well as being a useful item also looks impressive on display.

Silver is not a cheap metal and you cannot expect to find a cheap silver tea set. However it is something that can be considered an investment and will grow in value over the years. Antique silver tea sets are worth considerably more than the modern versions.

If your budget can’t stretch to an entire tea set then you may want to consider just buying a silver tea pot or possibly a cup and saucer. These items still make a lovely and thoughtful gift that will be greatly appreciated by the recipient.
