ElgaKoster Posted June 21, 2014 Share Posted June 21, 2014 I bought this set about twelve years ago at a local antique fair for the grand sum of $20. It seems to be a little big for true twelve scale but I like it and think it will look great in my Cape Dutch house.I am not sure if it is a coffee or tea set, the pot has a strainer on top, it had a lid when I bought it but unfortunately I seem to have lost it, sometime I will ask a silver smith if they can make me a new lid. The set has four cups and saucers. It came with a tray with a Spanish inscription that says "recuerdo de sus ahijados a A.P.I." google translate tells me that means "memory of their godchildren to A.P.I. An intersting little find and something that I never regretted buying as it is quite well made.Whoever that had it before me cleaned it with a silver cream polish and didn't remove it properly around the handles etc, the silver seems marred in these places, any suggestions as to how to polish it or something that I can do to restore the shine. And is there anything I can use to protect it with as it tarnishes quite fast. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
