The body of this large tea caddy is further ornamented with a bright cut engraved leaf bordered oval vacant cartouche to either side. This tea caddy retains the original hallmarked hinged cover which is encompassed with an identical bright cut engraved layered leaf border to that of the body. The caddy is fitted with the original locking mechanism; the lock is not operational.
This impressive antique Victorian caddy retains the original internal divider, as to be expected with such a large caddy. This large tea caddy is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp. Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the caddy and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of antique silverware.
