ANTIQUE SILVER TEA CADDIES

The name caddy comes from the Malay word Kati, which was a unit of weight tea was often purchased in. English silver tea caddies from before 1700 are very rare due to the rarity of tea, and early examples are highly prized. In the 1760’s tea caddies were made with locks, a necessity with the rise of the black market for tea at this time. While tea caddies have been made in a number of materials over the years, English silver examples are still considered to be some of the finest ever made, and are sought after by collectors all over the world.
