Novelty Fruit Caddy Modelled as a Peach
From our Tea Caddy collection, we are delighted to offer this Georgian Peach Tea Caddy. The Tea Caddy is beautifully formed as a juicy peach fruit with small button stalk and central seam. The Peach is carved from Sycamore with a steel cut oval escutcheon and traces of the original foil lining within used to keep tea fresh. The Peach Tea Caddy is of Continental origin and dates to the Georgian period circa 1800.
The Peach Tea Caddy comes complete with a working lock and tasselled key and is considered to be one of the rarest forms of fruit-shaped tea caddies.
Sycamore, also known as Harewood is a member of the Maple family, found in Europe. It is light yellow in colour and is often a very clean wood, with a straight, fine grain. The wood is often pippy. However, these pips are usually a very similar colour to the rest of the wood making them hardly visible.
Georgian era was a period in British history dating from 1714-1837, the Georgian era after the Hanoverian kings George I, George II, George III and George IV.
