A vintage oriental ceramic tea caddy (not airtight) and cover decorated with flora, fans and birds and gilt decoration. The cover is relatively loose fitting (as was usually the case). Underneath the cover is a ceramic stopper.
The gilding is wearing in places and we have tried to show this in the photographs. There is a mark to one of the sides that we have been unable to remove but it is barely noticeable (and difficult to show in the photographs). Otherwise, the caddy appears to be structurally sound.
With the lid in place, the caddy stands just over 4.25in high and measures just under 3in square at the base. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the middle part of last century, or earlier.
