A lovely, newer style tea service in flowing style. Cute legs on all the pieces and each piece still has it's original manufacturer's tag on the bottom. The tag is International Silver Company. E.P. Brass. nice and heavy.

The teapot measures 10, 1/2 inches tall and has no pitting inside. The cream is 2,5/8 inches tall and sugar is 4 inches including the lid and have no inside marks. I don't see any marks or dents on the outsides either. (I think they were shelf queens.) 
I have cleaned them up a bit, but I think they had a protective coating and it has been taken off. The silver still shines like new and they have no patina. 

The pieces will be only sold as a set for $99.00

  2. Lucy, thanks, I do believe they are the same set! I think I paid a total of around $12 for the set. There is a picture of the pre-polished look, here:http://mimi-inthemiddleofnowhere.blogspot.com/2009/11/candy-store.html
    I just figured it was a real cheap set...therefore it was going home with me! Guess I did pretty good, didn't I? I am still looking for a teapot at the thrift....I see coffee services all the time but never a teapot.
