This stylish and collectible mid century tea set was produced in the Northampton foundry of Burrage and Boyd, designed by Jean Picquot. The material used is a unique magnesium/aluminium alloy that they named Magnalium. Most of the items in the range were cast as a single piece and the solid construction is efficient at retaining heat. The handles are made from the wood of sycamore trees.
The set is comprised of a teapot, hot water pot, lidded sugar bowl and milk jug.

Hot Water Pot - Height 17 cm Diameter 10 cm Handle to Spout18 cm
Milk Jug - 9.5 cm Diameter 8 cm Handle to Spout 13 cm
Sugar Bowl - Height 8 cm Width 9.5 cm
The set has signs of wear commensurate with age and use, mainly a bit of dulling to the surface finish.
