Five-Piece Tea And Coffee Service, 1929

This is a Five-Piece Tea and Coffee Service. It was designed by George Christian Gebelein and produced by Gebelein Silversmiths.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Museum of Fine Arts, Boston as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.

It is dated 1929. Its medium is silver, ebonized wood.

Gebelein earned acclaim for the high quality of his handcrafted wares such as this Federal-style silver tea service of 1929 based on Paul Revere. An expert in the history of colonial silver, Gebelein collected antique silversmithing tools, some purchased directly from Revere's descendants.

It is credited Lent by Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Anonymous Gift, 1986.778-.782.
