Superb Antique Victorian Gilt And Silver Plated Tea Caddy Circa 1860 Elkington
Superb Antique Victorian Gilt And Silver Plated Tea Caddy Circa 1860 Probably by Elkington & Co. but not marked with makers mark.
The body is gilt metal with five high relief panels in silver plate on copper. The scenes include a Tiger hunt to the lid with the sides both featuring Angels or Cherubs. The front shows a horse riding and encampment scene while the back shows a rural village. All are in excellent condition with no signs of damage just some light wearing in places as to be expected with age. Inside is a highly polished silver plated panel inside the lid and two original silver plated oval caddies, both in excellent condition.
The box is 18cm wide x 13.5cm deep x 14cm tall including the lid panel. The caddy has had replacement baize to the base but otherwise appears original.
