Description

A fine example of a late 18th century “rolled paper” TEA CADDY in particularly good original condition. Surmounted by its original ‘axehead’ handle, the hexagonal lid opens to reveal twin lids inside, with some of the original lead lining remaining. What id remarkable is that the original colours and gilding remain bright; so many have faded over the years.
In the late 18th century, it was fashionable for young Ladies to decorate their own Tea Caddies. It is believed that rolled paper ‘kits’ existed, which is possibly why no two rolled-paper caddies are the same.
