This antique 19th century tea caddy box is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The embossed and chased decoration is all very sharp and the bright cut engraved ornamentation is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the caddy sleeve and part hallmarks to the rim of the cover are all very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of antique silverware.
