Copper tea caddy c1910
Joseph Sankey & Sons of Bilston, Wolverhampton are the makers of this extremely fine example of tea caddies from the art nouveau period. The stylised decoration is seen on the front side only, where it certainly catches the eye. This is the size 16 - one of the largest that they made and I suspect the number is intended to indicate the amount of tea that could comfortably be held in the caddy ( 16 ounces or one pound ). Surface has been left to protect the patina that has built up over the years, but these are equally stunning when polished. Condition is excellent- no dents and firm fitting lid. Measured to the top of the cap, the caddy stands 7 3/8" (187mm) tall, 5" (129mm) wide and 3 7/8"(98mm) deep. Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We do this to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair.
