Danish metalware brand Georg Jensen enlisted the duties of industrial designer Marc Newson for this made-to-order tea set limited to only 10 editions. Each individual set consists of five hand-hammered silver pieces including a tea and coffee pot, creamer and sugar bowl, paired with a large serving tray. The handles of each serving piece feature a real piece of extinct mammoth tusk that the manufacturers assure has been "responsibly sourced."

Each exclusive mammoth ivory and silver tea set retails for £82,000 and is also made from by a third generation silversmith in the company's Copenhagen workshop. Made from high-quality and rare materials, this tea set definitely makes your daily cup of tea a prestigious occasion.
