New Figural Tea CaddiesBy

New Figural Tea Caddies

Copies of figural wooden tea caddies are available. Three shapes are offered: a pear (shown below), a plum and a papaya. Original figural fruit tea caddies date to the 18th and early 19th centuries. Originals were mostly made of fruitwood and now sell for $1,500-$3,000 and up. The new pieces are fairly crude painted tropical wood made in Indonesia. The keyhole is purely decorative, there is no locking mechanism inside.
