The Caddy is referred to as transitional, as it is a design which is moving from the large oval to the rare drum form. The Caddy is an unusual design to come from the workshops of Hester Bateman and the sides display an upper and lower band of flower heads in ovals, flanked by foliage, on a trellis work background. This is also a most unusual decorative design to come from her workshops. The band is repeated on the hinged cover. The front of the main body displays a beautiful star bright cut cartouche which contains a contemporary eagle Crest. The cover terminates in a Neo-Classical urn finial and this example possesses its original working quatrefoil key. The Tea Caddy is fully marked on the base and with the maker's mark on the cover. The caddy is in excellent condition.
