Beautiful 800 silver tea caddy, probably Austrian
The tea caddy has beautiful figures of a woman with a child on each side and on the top of its lid. The caddy is hallmarked on the bottom with 13 used in Austria and Hungary to denote 80% silver purity in 19th century and two other hallmarks unknown to us. The item is in nearly perfect condition, there are minor tear and wear signs only. (Note: there are reflection spots in photos due to lighting. In reality, the tea caddy has no spots.) Very nice item! Height: 3 1/4 inches, width: ~2.0 inches, weight: 4.0 oz.
