A VERY INTERESTING SILVER TEA CADDY. THE CADDY IS PROFUSELY DECORATED THROUGHOUT WITH FIGURES OF SOLDIERS AND MAIDENS AND NOBLEMEN. THE CADDY IS A SMALL SIZE AND I WOULD SUGGEST 18TH CENTURY AND POSSIBLY DUTCH.

THE HALLMARKS ARE LONG SINCE RUBBED AWAY, YOU CAN SEE THE PIECE WAS HAND HAMMERED AND FROM THE WEAR TO THE PATTERN IN PLACES THIS IS VERY OLD. LOOKING INSIDE THE BASE HAS BEEN SOLDERED ON AND THERE IS A 2MM GAP IN THE SEAM AT THE BASE. THERE IS A POSSIBLILITY OF A X OR A MARK WITH A CROWN ABOVE THE MALE FIGURE, IT IS VERY VERY RUBBED BUT IN A CERTAIN LIGHT YOU CAN JUST SEE IT, I HAVE TRIED TO PHOTOGRAPH THIS BUT IT IS VERY DIFFICULT. TH TOP RIM IS OUT OF SHAPE AND THERE ARE A FEW DINGS TO THE BODY.
