Rare Tea Caddies

A very unusual Regency tea caddy just that has just come into stock is shown below, rare because of its interior with space for 12 tea spoons

I have not had this model of tea caddy for quite a few years, we have put four Georgian silver tea spoons into the slots just to let you see how they fit

The interior of the caddy with 6 slots behind each tea compartment to hold spoons

The caddy still has its original cut glass bowl used of sugar or some times called a mixing bowl to blend the green and black tea.

An other earlier tea caddy in at the moment is this mid 18th century George II Laburnum veneered model in excellent condition

The interior has three tea canisters with sliding lids, veneered onto oak.
