Amazing 19c Chinese Export Gold Gilt Lacquer Caddy Covered In Birds W Lock & Key For Sale

Amazing 19c Chinese Export Gold Gilt Lacquer Caddy Covered In Birds W Lock & Key

I am very pleased to offer the amazing 19c Chinese export gold gilt lacquer tea caddy in the verydesirableoctagonal shape with canted top edgescontaining(17) different decorated panels of well done birds with the caddy sitting on four winged dragon feet complete with two interior pewter teacanisters. This fabulous caddy was produced in Canton, China during the height of the 'Old China Trade' era around c1870 or perhaps a bit earlier destined for export to the West. This isundoubtedlyone of the finest Chinese gilt lacquer caddies that you will see here on as it is one of perhaps 3 or 4 of my best ever and I have owned well over 100 in the past 24 years and even owning a few similar to this. This particular caddy is rarely found like this with the top panel having the birds executed in raised relief tu tone gold lacquer having bright red feet. The entire outside of this caddy has (17) separate enclosed panels with each one having a different scene inside containing a variety of birds, butterflies, grasses and bamboo as well as trees, flowers and rockery with the birds standing in what appears to be a small ground cover and the background is not the normal black/brown but this has a burgandy type shade or called burgette . The workmanship and details of this caddy is of the finest order as well as its almost pristine condition and sits on four carved wooden winged dragon feet with bright red mouths and the inside has a pair of opposing ferns on the inner lid with a pair of perfect undented pewter canisters for keeping the tea fresh which are hand engraved to the top as well as the outer caps with turned knobs on the inner lids. Both upper and lower lippings are finished again with beautiful tu tone gold gilt lacquer in a continuous winding vine pattern. The hinges and lock are in fine working condition with its original key still present. Condition overall is wonderful only having a tiny bit of rubbing on the lid but is maybe only 3% of the overall amount and the only other flaws are a few short superficial lacquer cracks in the inside corners and a few on the flat surfaces but nothingdetrimentalotherwise a rare opportunity for a investment quality Chinese tea Caddy. Sizes: Width 9" x Depth 6-3/4" x Height 6".
