Sterling Silver Tea Sets can date back hundreds of years. A tea set's value depends on its condition, country of origin, age, manufacturer and style. A tea set is, at minimum, made up of a teapot, a cream jug and a sugar bowl, although some sets have up to nine pieces. Antique sterling-silver tea sets are considered the most valuable; however, certain mass-produced older sets are less desirable and fetch lower prices. Sterling silver should have a small icon pressed into the metal; this icon is known as a hallmark. A hallmark could be a picture or a series of letters or digits. A tea set will usually have the same mark on each piece (use a magnifying glass to get a closer look if needed). Hallmarks will often signify everything from the place where the item was made to the manufacturer's name. The stamp "925" is used on sterling-silver pieces; stamps that read "830" or "800" indicate a lower grade of silver that's not considered sterling. English and some continental sterling silver isn't stamped with "925"; instead, these types of silver boast other distinguishing hallmarks, such as a lion passant for genuine English silver. Sterling silver is usually worth more than no sterling silver.

The candle has been around as early as 3000 BC and since then, displaying light has become a necessity. Candleholders (or candelabras) made of clay have been found dating back to 400 BC.
The word candelabra are a derivation of the Latin word "candelabrum" which means candlestick. Candelabra are the term that refers to a pair or more of decorative candlesticks or candleholders shaped as a column or pedestal and having several arms for holding candles. Candelabrum is the singular form and usually refers to one candlestick. Candelabras can be made of any material, including silver, gold, brass, copper, iron or crystal. Although it is understood candelabra were used during the Middles Ages (400 –1400 AD), artifacts and records from the 1600’s provide examples of candlesticks and candelabra.18th century candelabra are now quite rare, and anything before 1750 is very rare. In the 1800’s, silver candelabra became de rigueur at the evening dinner table, providing both illumination and decoration for the substantial, end of day meal. The demise of the candelabra, along with candlesticks, came with the invention of the light bulb in the 1870’s.The vast majority was made in the 19th century before the advent of electricity, and they are still being made today.
