This is an awesome 4 legged Embossed Brass Tea Caddy. I did some research and a gentleman sold one and he described it as;
"Rare Antique Scottish Wood & Brass Repousse Tea Caddy w/ Celtic Design. The tea caddy is made of a solid wood construction with a brass repousse overlay, c. 1860s. The piece has a beautifully hand-hammered Celtic design on 4 sides".
The Caddy stands 6" high and the sides are 4" wide.
