You won't find many sets in such great condition for the period, as well as finding different patterns complementing each other really well. The creamer does have a very, very minor soft dent. Wear commensurate with age and use.

For a quick hallmark education, since the tea and coffee pots are different dates, as the creamer and sugar: Meriden Company bought out International Silver Company in 1896. The Coffee and Tea Pots date about 1900 and the sugar and creamer date 1900 - 1910, as the Simpson, Hall, Miller & Co.'s hallmark was used for many years into the 20th Century by the International Silver Company.
