What a great item for tea time! This tin dispenser for loose leaf tea is about the same size as a tea caddy. It has four brackets for mounting to a wall and both top and bottom are hinged for filling with tea and for cleaning. A small lever bottom right allows the tea to be dispensed; as little as a spoonful or more if so desired. It is a little creaky, but works well. The front reads "Tea from Ceylon", and there are lovely illustrations of tea picking, performers and the national symbol of a golden lion, which of course has now become Sri Lanka. I think it dates form the 1960's and was probably distributed by the Ceylon Tea Board to promote its imported teas. Measurements: 4" square by 5 3/4" high, not including spout. or 100mm square by 145mm high , not including spout. Brew yourself a nice cuppa!

Kanazawa's famous Kenrokuen was crowded and a bit disappointing. Luckily I found this patch of green moses at a transquil corner of the garden.
