Why We Love This

An excellent porcelain tea caddy by Meissen, featuring a delicate hand-painted floral design. Directly inspired by early Chinese tea holders, the canister is topped with a domed cap that was used as a measure for the tea. This is an outstanding artifact from the early history of tea and porcelain in Europe. Porcelain canisters such as this are highly sought among serious collectors. Bears Meissen crossed swords mark in blue underglaze.
