Coin silver tea set by William Gale of NYC c. 1816-1827. Gale worked c. 1816-1866 but always with another or others after 1827 and with a joint mark as far as I can determine, thus the attribution to 1816-27. The pieces are engraved on the right hand side with a "W' in script, but the monograms are quite rubbed. The base of the teapot has an old repair with silver solder which is barely noticeable. A very nice set.
