Fine Georgian tortoise shell tea caddy

An Early 19th Century Tortoiseshell Tea Caddy, the hinged shaped top with a flat surface and silver cartouche. The main body with slightly concave sides, with gilt lion mask handles. The front with concave outline to the edges. The tortoiseshell panels are separated by metal stringing and the caddy stands on four cast and gilt white metal feet. The caddy benefits from its original key and silver capped lock (unmarked silver). The lock is marked 'patent' and 'GR' with a crown. The interior of the caddy is superior to most, lined with a pale pink velvet, and with two hinged tea compartments that lift out for ease of use. To the centre of the caddy is a space for the cut glass mixing bowl, which appears to be contemporary with the caddy. It also comes with an unmarked white metal caddy spoon. This caddy really is in a class of its own. Lovely condition, any repairs have been carried out by us.

Six matching Victorian pewter tankards

The tankards were made for 'Two Brothers, Chatham' (marked on base of each tankard)which must have been a pub at the time. The tankards bear marks applied by the local weights and measures inspector, consisting of VR 354, whcih was the mark for Kent between 1879 and 1901. Two say Quart, and the other four say Pint. Each tankard has the initials WG on the front, which would have been the landlord. They are in good condition overall, with a few dents here and there as you would expect with 100 years plus of use.
