Stunning antique James W. Tufts Quadruple Silverplate Sugar Bowl and Creamer Set is in good condition and one of the finest pieces of Quadruple Silverplate available by James W. Tufts, Boston. (c. 1870's) Exceptional hand-tooled design on both sides, and around the neck of this silverplate sugar bowl and creamer. The main design on the body seem to be of palm trees, deeply engraved into the bodies.
This fine silverplate sugar bowl from James W. Tufts Quadruple Silverplate has only a moderate amount of the original silverplate intact. No dings or dents. Moderate silverplate wear along the footed base edge. More significant loss is noted along the upper edge of the floral banding on this sugar bowl. No dings or dents, only minor loss of silverplate along the edge of the sugar bowl.
Very heavily silverplated, this silverplate sugar bowl weighs one pound and measures 7" from the tips of the handles, 5" diameter for the sugar bowl itself, and 4" high to the top of the sugar bowl.
The fine silverplate creamer of James W. Tufts Quadruple Silverplate has the ORIGINAL thick silverplate intact. No dings or dents, no loss of silverplate on the creamer. Minor silverplate wear along the footed base edge, along the upper edge and two very minor scratches noted on the floral banding.
The inside shows some usage in the bottom, but overall, I'd rate this fine silverplate creamer an 8 out of 10. Very heavily silverplated, this silverplate creamer weighs 10-1/2 ounces and measures approximately 3-3/4" high and 5-1/2" from the tip of the handle to the tip of the spout.
The silverplate sugar bowl is touchmarked on the base, James W. Tufts, Quadruple Plate, Boston, Warranted with the Tufts registered logo and the pattern number "2200". The silverplate creamer has the touchmark of "1916", although both styles and patterns are identical. You can read more about the history of James W.
