Volkstedt Scenic Teacaddy

This is a fantastic lidded tea jar / caddy made by Volkstedt in the 18th century. This piece is nicely handpainted with two landscape scenes - one on the front and one on the back. The scenes include buildings, trees and other greenery. Gold trim to the top egde, around the scenes and on the lid. The finial of the lid is a typical shape used by Thuringia makers. The handle finial has a fake screw on either side where it attaches to the main body which I like. The piece is in great condition with some wear to the gilding and the lid has been restored but at least we have it as they are most often lost. The piece is marked underneath with the black crossed hayforks as shown off course meants to imitate the Meissen crossed swords. The pot and lid are 4.25 inches tall and 2.125 inches square on the sides. Please email me for more information or photos.

Price is $499
