Vintage Copper Tea Caddy, Late 19th Century
Vintage copper—is there a dreamier sight? Whether it’s a gleaming tea kettle or a well-worn (but well-loved!) gratin dish, copper lends easy, warm elegance to a home, without all the stuffiness. We’ve brought you an assortment of stunning, one-of-a-kind finds from Coppermill Kitchen to add to your collection (you won't find them anywhere else!), exclusive to the Food52 Shop.
This traditional English tea caddy—by traditional, we're talking straight outta the 1880s, by the way—has beautiful beaded edging and an easy hinged lid. Sounds pretty good for the 2010s too, to be honest.
All items from Coppermill Kitchen are final sale. Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.
