A rare English George III pear form fruitwood tea caddy. 18th century. Size: 8.75 inches height. x 4.5 inches diameter. Retaining wooden stem, original brass hinge, scalloped metal key escutcheon (lock not working) and remnants of foil lining. Condition is very good, with two drying age cracks in the lid which have been filled at some point in the past. Lovely patina. Original Georgian fruit-form tea caddies are scarce to find.
Very decorative French woven wicker gathering basket for collecting grapes for wine making. Size: 30 inches ht. x 29 inches wide x 25 inches deep. Circa 1890. Very nice original condition. Wonderful as a hanging wall display.
