Vintage English Octagonal Tea Caddy, Late 19th Century
Time for tea.
Take one look at this vintage copper caddy, and you might just be whisked away to 19th century England, where it once stored tea leaves for everyday pick-me-ups. (Yep, this one’s been around since about 1880!) It has a hinged lid and rope design edging for extra flair, plus a silver interior. Oh, and when you turn it over? You’ll find a stamp that hints at its origins: It reads “Cheltenham & Company Ltd, Made in England.” Now, who'd like a cup of tisane?
