19th Century Anglo-Indian Spice or Tea Caddy with Silver Mounts


Really nice and unusual 19th century Anglo-Indian spice or tea caddy, circa 1890. Made of solid exotic hardwood with solid silver mounts on base and lid. The lid has three silver studs and a central silver large clasp which connect to a wooden finial underneath. The lid is the banded with silver repoussé work. The lid fits snuggly into the base to make it air-tight, to keep the contents fresh. The base is solid turned hardwood with silver repoussé banding. The chain in silver but later, but would be identical to the original. I have never seen another like this, it could have held spices, tea or tobacco. This is a very rare tea caddy and highly collectible!
