Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
A very unusual pair of pentagonal shaped brass tea caddies.
The caddies have tall tapering hinged lids that have a small figure of Napoleon on the top.
The caddies are tin plate lined and each of the brass panels are five sided (pentagon) except the tapering lid which has five triangle panels.
The caddies come with a brass standing figure of Napoleon on his horse which is based on the painting "Napoleon Crossing The Alps" by Jacques-Louis David.
The caddies are in good condition, the figure has had replacement screws underneath. (Circa 1850)
Caddy Height 22cm (8.7 inches)
Diameter 11.5cm approx (4.5 inches)
Figure Height 18cm (7.1 inches)
Width 14cm (5.5 inches)
Depth 7.5cm (3 inches)
