To celebrate #Burnsnight, we are sharing this wonderful four-piece silver tea service by Elkington and Company. Made in Glasgow in 1909, the pieces depict scenes connected to the life of the Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-1796), as well as scenes inspired by his poems, while the milk jug features various views of his hometown Alloway, including the cottage where he was born. These scenes are surrounded with chased thistle cartouches, the national flower for Scotland.

I have a collection as such a design but made in pewter inherited from my grandmother and i am 80 ....

Ae fond kiss.

How beautiful this collection is. Robert Burns, quite a character, fathered 12 children apparently. Died so young, aged 37 just read this today. Happy Burns night everyone!
