Repousse TEA Caddy LION Finial SP - ANTIQUE -
Beautiful repousse scenic tea caddy with lion finial. Fancy Baroque bombé form.
On the front and back are two lovers on a bench in a garden. Beside them is a peacock in a tree. The scene is surrounded by dense floral designs. On either side the man is serenading the woman. The top has a scene of a waterfront church and a sailboat with swags and flowers. The finial of this beautiful tea caddy is a full figure lion.
Stamped on the bottom with a German P, Medieval C and cross pattee (iron cross) as shown in photo.
Circa late 19th C.
Possibly made in Germany
Measures 3-1/4 wide, 5-1/2 inches tall
Very Good overall condition. There is a good deal of silver wear with copper showing through. No dings, dents or repairs found.
