Victorian Serpentine Papier Mache Tea Caddy

This antique serpentine front papier mache tea caddy is beautifully decorated with painted flowers, exotic birds and gilding. It stands on original shaped feet and the lid lifts to reveal twin lidded compartments. The condition is good, as shown in the photographs there a couple of small nibbles to the front corner, these are as can be expected on an item that has been in use for almst 150 years. The high quality of the decoration is typical of the Victorian period, a really lovely piece that would make a delightful display item.
