A good antique silver tea caddy box in the Queen Anne style. Britannia standard silver*. It has a sliding top and the cap comes off to be used as a tea measure. Excellent plain features. To the front is an engraved crest. Weight 202 grams, 6.4 troy ounces. Height 12 cms. Base 8.9 x 6.2 cms. London 1930. Maker Richard Comyns.
This pretty tea box is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Each piece is stamped with English silver hallmarks which are clear and matching. The sliding lid works well. Everything is original and complete.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
*Britannia Standard. In 1696, so extensive had become the melting and clipping of coinage that the silversmiths were forbidden to use the sterling standard for their wares, but had to use a new higher standard, 95.8 per cent. New hallmarks were ordered, “the figure of a woman commonly called Britannia” and the lion’s head erased (torn off at the neck) replacing the lion passant and the leopard’s head crowned. This continued until the old standard of 92.5 per cent was restored in 1720. Britannia standard silver still continues to be produced even today.
