Silver Tea Caddies


Tea caddies are items of antique silverware with particularly special provenance, due to their links to aristocracy and the ruling classes.


Tea was initially an extraordinary luxury only afforded by the richest members of society, and this precious commodity needed to be contained somewhere safe where insects and thieving hands could not reach it.


Tea caddies were such a method of security for the expensive tea leaves that many even featured locks! Antique silver tea caddies are a wonderful and typically British reminder of the importance of tea as a national treasure and reminder of the empirical nature of our country's history.


At AC Silver we are proud to have a fantastic collection of fine and impressive tea caddies in many decorative styles, sizes and forms.
