Lovely old tea caddy or cannister, a fine Oriental metalwork box we believe from Japan, or English in the Japanese style. It is of a heavy metal, content unknown, with beautiful flowers on all sides and key designs on the corners; with removable original lid. It has a lovely age patina showing shades of the colors of copper, brass and silver, and the flowers are cast in very high relief. It is 4 & 1/2" tall and in good condition with some age wear and a little tarnish on the bottom and the upper flat sides area. Lovely item, and we don't find these often!
