Rare brass tea caddy bearing the double eagle arms of Russia's imperial Romanov dynasty. The interior of the box is tinned, a typical feature of Russian construction of copper or brass vessels. The brass decoration stands out in relief. The hinged lid of the caddy could be locked with a padlock, a tradition that hearkened to earlier days when tea was exotic and extremely valuable.

Origin: Russia, circa 1890s. Condition: excellent, a few pinpoint dings consistent with age and use. Size: 4" x 2-13/16" x 2-1/2".
