A Fine Chinese Pewter Tea Caddy – Qing
September 2013 Auction by Far East Asian Art

This is a three piece pewter tea caddy from China, circa 1850s- 1880s. On its rounded sides it has low relief designs of a blossoming plum tree – a spray of bamboo - and a lovely group of chrysanthemums. On the lid there is an interesting geometric design of intertwined vines. The tea caddy measures 4” high and is 3 ¼” diameter at its widest. The original three pieces are intact with the inner seal fitting nice and tight – it could be used today without any problem of loss of aroma...
