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 apple and crowned by a metal "stem". 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" in diameter (at widest point) x 5" high. 

In excellent vintage condition with minimal "dings" commensurate with age. No paint loss of note. See photos for details. 

This is just one of a collection of tea caddies we recently acquired. See our shop for other options.

 

Please note: The $35 shipping cost is in addition to purchase price for delivery via FedEX Home/Ground deliery within the 48 contiguous states. See the "Shipping & Handling" sidebar for details.
