The incurved corners to each edge are ornamented with applied ribbed borders, simulating a panelled effect to the plain waisted body.
The front surface is embellished with a fine and impressive bright cut engraved crest displaying out of a ducal coronet a phoenix, wings extended.
The tea caddy retains the original plain domed hallmarked hinged cover embellished with further applied gadroon style decoration to the rim.
The cover is surmounted with the original sterling silver rectangular chamfered finial.
The lower portion of this Georgian caddy is supported by an impressive pierced decorated gallery incorporating chased leaf decorated bracket style feet in the Regency style.
The maker's mark of this impressive piece is a part of the missing marks register for largeworkers and remains untraced.
