Condition Report
This is a beautiful tea caddy with all it's original parts and has not been restored
However, I would describe this as in 'Country House' condition
i.e. it has had a life. If you look carefully at the pictures you can see it has years of scratches all over
(Also you can see where fingernails have worn away the finish around the little bone handles of the compartment lids as they have been picked up)
Inside the lid is much brighter, due to being hidden away from light and daily handling
All the silver pieces are marked in good condition
