Marks:
Mark on all, bottom: TIFFANY & CO./2050MAKERS377/STERLING-SILVE/925-1000/M. Patern number (2050) is same for 82.36, but much lower order number indicates that this was the Ballantine's original tea set, and that the coffee pot (82.36) was added a few years later. The coffee urn (82.35) was earlier, by a year or so.
