EPNS TEA SERVICE SET SILVER PLATED JOHN ROUND & SONS.
A really nice looking EPNS tea set manufactured by 'John Round & Sons Ltd'.
The teapot (as a general guide to the sets size) measures 13.5cm tall.
Marked to the bases of each piece are various marks that are very clear to see with no rubbing, please see the pics below.
In good overall condition. The teapot is maybe missing a lid? and it has a dent on the base rim. The milk jug has a smaller dent to the base rim. The suger pot maybe missing a lid? There are some spots of tarnishing to all the pieces and the set could do with a clean and/or pollish.
Please take a look at the large pics below.
Marks used:- JR/ER, J.R&SnLd, JR (in oval punch)
Trademark:- a ball surrounded by the words "ALL THE ROUND" within a circle
John Round began his Sheffield business in 1847 as a supplier to William Huttons. By the late 1800’s they began to produce large quantities of flatware. There maker’s mark is often mistaken as being Joseph Rodgers & Sons, however the oval shaped punch (with outline) distinguishes it. Ironically, Joseph Rodgers & Sons bought the company, in 1932.

Ebay sellers have no control regarding delivery times, just dispatch times. I always dispatch my items within 3 days after receiving cleared payment. Please allow up to 36 days for delivery.
36 days is the minimum time period that is accepted by Royal Mail before allowing any claims for insurance in the case of loss or damage.
All of my items are wrapped well to save them from damage in the post.
Postage charges don't just cover the service charge, they cover all other hidden costs aswell ie:-
* Petrol and parking costs.
* Quality packaging including: bubble wrap, envelopes, fragile stickers, address and return address labels, ink/pens, boxes, cellotape, parcel tape, fragile and fragile glass tape.
* Time spent wrapping parcels and taking them to the post office.
Recyclable packaging is also used.
International postage fees are charged for the destination it would cost the most to post to as it is not possible to list the rates for every destination.
It is very difficult in some cases to predict what the postage may cost.
Please feel free to contact me if the postage charge is more than 10% greater than what Royal Mail charged me to post (minimum fee of 50p), and a refund of the difference will be issued. The 10% extra of the postage costs is the money that covers the hidden postage fees as mentioned above and is already included in the postage fee charged to the buyer.
Payment is to be made within 7 days after the auction has ended.
