Cafe au Lait, as the name suggests, was a French concept popular in Europe through the late 18th and early 19th Centuries, and only really arrived in the UK at the start of the Victorian period. As such early Cafe au Lait sets are usually continental and made for the European market, although occasionally early English examples are seen. The majority of sterling silver Cafe au Lait sets date from the end of the 19th Century and the 20th Century.
