David Mellor Walker & Hall Pride Silver Plated Teapot Water Jug Sugar Bowl C1958

David Mellor 4 piece "Pride" Tea Set Designed c1958Manufactured by Walker & Hall
This is a great piece of Modernist design and considered as a turning point in Mid Century Modern History

The set is in silver plate with black nylon handles and comprises of a teapot, hot water (coffee pot) milk/cream jug and open sugar bowl.
Iconic piece of british design and it achieved a high award by London's Design Centre.

The Pride tea set is illustrated in many publications and is held in various museum collections around the world.The Design Centre publication from1959describes it as follows: "Electro-plate has here been given the attention which, until recently, was thought worthy only of silver. The set is not only distinguished in its appearance, the sugar bowl and milk jug are as well shaped as the tea-pot, it is designed for maximum usefulness. The lids are interchangeable and the nylon handles, are hard wearing and heat resistant, large enough to prevent the user's hand from touching the metal - an obvious point, but one that is frequently overlooked"
Condition - Overall good used vintage condition with light wear, there is a small dimple towards the base of the hot water pot (this could be taken out by a silver smith), see image, there is a very small nick to the edge of the lids, see images. a little light wear to the silver plated base of the items from use.Black nylon handles are very good
Marks - full `walker and Hall marks and numbers to the base of each piece.
