A Pear-form Tea Caddy

An unusual paint decorated pear-form tea caddy. The hinged lid has a carved and painted stem opening to reveal an interior lined with silver foil. The surface of the tea caddy is decorated as the skin of a pear.

The inlaid escutcheon appears to be a shield-shaped piece of bone. This caddy comes with a key, however, the lock is not working.
