T9345 Indian Sterling Tea Caddy Hamilton of Calcutta

An Indian silver tea chest shaped tea caddy with wood lining and leather base. The lid opens on a hinge. The panels are all engraved with details of what one would see on a tea chest. For those of us who have used tea chests to pack goods in the UK this is an exact replica of a real full size tea chest complete with dimples on the side panels.

The maker is Hamilton and Co of Calcutta India and there is the mark of the company on the edge of the base. The pins, all hand done represent the rivets on a tea chest.

Height 4 1/2".
