Arts and Crafts Copper Repousse Tea Caddy Newlyn Keswick Type Honesty Pattn 1900

Antique Arts and Crafts Copper Repousse Tea Caddy with Honesty Design c 1900.

Here we have a highly decorative and collectable antique arts and crafts piece of copper ware. This cylindrical shaped tea caddy has repousse decoration of Honesty seed heads - a popular motif during the arts and crafts / art nouveau period. There is no maker's mark as is often the case with hand crafted items such as this, but it is similar to pieces produced by the Newlyn School and Keswick School of Industrial Arts.

The caddy stands 6 inches high and has a base diameter of 4 1/4 inches. It has a slightly domed close fitting lid, also featuring the honesty design, and has a tinned interior. It weighs 451g and has suffered damage at some point. It has been dropped and this has created a bash in the footrim which has partially detached from the base. This could be repaired but it can be displayed so that this damage is concealed. 

This is a great item of arts and crafts metalware to add to any collection.
