Vintage Haddon Hall – Star of the Show!

I offered a little teaser on Instagram not too long ago… do you remember this?

Haddon Hall Silver Plated Coffee & Tea Service (1)

Just a quick snapshot of a vintage Haddon Hall coffee/tea set that came my way. Did you catch the post on the Ronson tabletop cigarette box? If not, you can see the very chic and glamorous Art Deco box here! This Haddon Hall set also came from our long time family friend.

In the meantime, here is a closer look at the Haddon Hall set.

This is the underside of the serving tray. You can see the detail of the engraving, and hints of patina showing in places. I asked for your feedback on patina – should it be left intact, or polished away? The feedback was mixed with half of you liking the patina left as is, and the other half liking a shiny, polished finish.

I’ve been dying to list this 5-piece coffee/tea set, but decided to wait for a special day, May 4th – the date of Audrey Hepburn’s birthday. Do you know Audrey would have been 85? I just think this set is so representative of the beauty and glamour our iconic Audrey was so well known for. Always beautiful, always elegant, and never overdone…

What do you think? Does this set remind you of our leading lady?

I think, star of the show!

Thanks for stopping by!
