Superb Antique English / European Silverplate Bombay Tea Chest / Caddy

Presented is a superb quality silver plate tea chest or tea caddy. This piece dates to the early 20th century, but unfortunately we do not know the maker or country of origin. The work suggests it is an English piece, or possibly French or Portuguese. The tea caddy is made in a classical 18th century Bombay form. The chest stands on four ornate paw form feet, and has a handle on either side. The lid has an urn form finial. The feet, finial, and handles are separately cast and applied, and the quality of the casting is exceptional and detailed. This piece would make a great dresser box or jewelry box, in addition to its original use as a tea storage chest.

This piece is in great overall condition. There is a tiny ding to the flare of the lid on one spot, but this is quite hard to notice. The silver plating is in great shape, with no wearthrough that I can see. There are no splits, no dents, no breaks, no monograms, no monogram removals, and no repairs.

The chest measures about 8 by 5 ΒΌ by 7 inches, LxWxH.

This piece weighs 835.5 grams.
