Vintage Tea Caddy - Repousse Silver Plate - Webster Mfg. Company

Where else will you store your tea from China except in this beautiful and nicely executed repousse silverplate tea caddy.

Silverplate over copper, this fine work of metal craftmanship depicts two different village scenes similar to the scenes on the Denmark, "Village Cracker Barrel".

Two separate metalwork techniques have been used -- repousse in which the metal is ornamented from the reverse side to create the raised relief design and embossing to sink the metal. It has a very exquisite handcrafted quality that makes it a charming piece. Circa 1865 - 1928.

3 3/8 inches in width -- 2 5/8 inches in length -- 4 1/2 inches in height to top of lid

Good vintage condition. The tea caddy was used and does show some dings, scuffs and wear and of course, a little tarnishing.
