Tea Caddy

This is a great teacaddy made by Hoechst in the 18th century. The main body is painted with a superb animal scene to the front including a goat and a sheep in a landscape surrounding with a gold scroll trim underneath it. Some puce flowers scattered throughout the rest of the piece with a nice puce and aqua trim to the top of the straight part and again on the top part as well as some gold trim. The lid has some puce flowers, a little puce scene and a nice flower finial. The tea jar is in great condition with the flower finial having some chips to the petals and there are two small chips in the same area on the bottom edge as shown. The caddy is marked underneath with an underglaze blue wheel under a crown mark as well as some incised letters as shown. The tea caddy is 5.25 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter.
