Who would't go nuts for this charming acorn shaped tea caddy box? At one time tea was a rare and cherished luxury. Leading to the popularity of locked tea boxes or "caddies". This vintage version is shaped like an acorn and crowned by a black knobbed finial. Faux finished overall in a lovely burl pattern. While this piece does not have an actual lock - it features a patinated "lock" surround on its front. The base is signed however we've been unable to decipher the artisan's name. Measures 4.75" in diameter (at widest point) x 7.5" high.
In excellent vintage condition with minimal "dings" commensurate with age. No paint loss of note with the exception a few worn areas on bottom. See photos for details.
This is just one of a collection of tea caddies we recently acquired. See our shop for other options.
