This caddy was commissioned in 1805 to match the #10303 George I silver tea caddy we have for sale dated 1718. The two caddies are a fully matching pair. Amazingly, we have the original maker’s receipt supplied by Savory, Farrand & Sheldrick in Cheapside. This must be a very rare and collectible item.
Marks. Stamped on the body underneath, and the cap, with a full set of English silver hallmarks; lid with lion mark and maker’s mark
