Herbert Dyer Tea Caddy
Upright oval copper tea caddy with a Cornish lugger in full sail on one side, and a lighthouse on the other.
The repoussé design on both sides is equally pleasing so either could face the front, the removeable lid fitting both ways enabling this to be possible.
With a wavy rivetted seam down one edge and the word ‘Tea’ in Olde English script on the lid.
These don’t come along too frequently and this example is in good condition with no dinks to the caddy itself, but just a little straightening needed on the rim of the lid if thought necessary.
Marked H. Dyer and dating from circa 1920’s, it measures just under 12 cm high and 11 cm wide.
