Queen Victoria’s silver coffee service, by William Bateman & Daniel Ball, comprising a coffee pot and burner, a cream jug and a sugar basin, each of lobed hexagonal form, with delicate floral engraving, the interior of the sugar basin gilded, the coffee pot, burner and cream jug engraved with the personal cypher of Queen Victoria within the motto of the Order of the Garter and surmounted by a crown, all contained in the original fitted wooden case by the royal goldsmiths Rundell, Bridge & Company. English, 1839.

Provenance: Margaret Julia Davys 1839.

Footnote: William Bateman and Daniel Ball were suppliers to Rundell, Bridge & Co. This silver coffee service was made for Queen Victoria early her reign. A similar silver tea service by the same makers engraved with the royal cypher is in the Royal Collection [see Royal Collections Trust, RCIN 47102]. Queen Victoria gifted the service to Margaret Julia Davys, daughter of the queen’s former tutor Rev. George Davys, on her marriage in November 1839.
