Tea Caddy

In the late 18th and early 19th century, Tea caddies were popular for storing tea. Tea was extremely expensive and therefore sparingly used. It was keep under lock and key in many wonderful containers. The larger varieties were known as tea chests. As tea grew cheaper there was less concern with the appearance of caddies, and as a result they fell out of use. Today we cherish the wonderfully made containers as decorative boxes.
