Good
The word "caddy" was derived from the Malaysian work "kati", meaning approximately one and one fifth's of a pound in weight. The cost of tea during the seventieth century was high, forty shillings per pound in 1664 but much higher in price when heavily taxed in the eighteenth century; that is why a lot of the caddies made between 1760-1810 are fitted with a lock and key.
