Fruitwood Melon Tea Caddy with a green and brown mottled decoration featuring a steel lock, hinge and escutcheon.

The interior unusually features a lid which sits on an inner rim not seen by us before and the fruit caddy still has traces of its original tin lining.

Melon tea caddies are much rarer and more sought after of the fruit tea caddies, patination and colour is everything when it comes to collecting these wonderful treen pieces of art.

This Melon Tea Caddy comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.

More information on Tea Caddies can be found on our history page.
