This exceptional antique Georgian sterling silver tea caddy has an oval form. The surface of the tea caddy is encompassed with bright cut engraved fabric swag designs and floral festoons, suspended from impressive spiralling foliate anchor-points accented with pensile bud designs. Each spiralling motif flanks a shield shaped cartouche displaying the contemporary engraved initials 'WM' and surmounted with a ribbon style bow. The upper and lower portions of the body are encompassed with engraved bands of chevron style decoration, in addition to an applied bead decorated border. This antique silver tea caddy retains the original hallmarked domed flush hinged cover; the flush hinge indicates the fine quality of this piece. The cover is embellished with further engraved chevron decoration and is surmounted with the original and exceptional carved pineapple style, silver topped finial; this finish is an important and fine feature of the piece.

The engraved and bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.
