The striking floral design on Whiting Division Silver’s 412R tea set will stun your teatime guests throughout spring and summer.

May and June mark the transition from spring to summer, and there is one trademark commonly associated with both seasons—flowers. As the fresh blooms of May thrive into the heat of June, a botanical motif is delightfully apropos for a tea party. The distinct efflorescent design featured on Whiting Division Silver’s 412R sterling, hollowware teapot, creamer, and sugar bowl make a versatile set to incorporate in your blue-and-white tablescapes.
