Item Description

Rare 'Bombé' shaped tolework triple compartment coffee caddy with three separately opening mahogany wooden lids which came from a high class grocery store in Victorian England.

With its original makers plaque on the reverse saying 'Parnall & Sons.... Bristol' (see photo) and slightly worn gilded front lettering 'COFFEE', this is a unique and rare relic of the late Victorian age and the Japanners (or 'Toleworkers') craft.

Another enamel plaque attached to the top front of the lid states 'Parnall & Co, Narrow Wine Street, Bristol'.

The Caddy is not only a wonderful 'Statement Piece'   but still very useable for storing coffee beans in a modern kitchen.

Measures 25" long x 11" deep x 14" high. In very good condition with some surface wear and imperfections from age. From England Circa 1860- 1890.
