ANTIQUE CHINESE GILT LAQUERED TEA CADDY WITH TWIN LEAD LINERS & KEY

CHINESE TEA CADDY

I have the pleasure of offering for sale this stunning Chinese gilt laquered tea caddy. The exterior is laquered black with two tone gilt decoration to every panel, whilst the inside is fitted with two beautifully decorated lead liners, each of these is fitted with two lids. It still retains its original key which works the lock perfectly and condition wise it is excellent. There is a little wear to the gilt as can be seen from my pictures but this is minimal and commensurate with age. The only damage is to the front right foot which has broken and been re-glued at some point. This gorgeous caddy displays beautifully and I have included lots of pictures to show this below. A superb piece and a great addition to your collection.

I have lots of other interesting goodies for sale so please take a look, as I am happy to combine postage and I will ship worldwide with the odd exception.
