Pair of Mirror Tea Caddies


Pair of Mirror Tea Caddies

A rare and unique pair of reverse mirror painted Tea Caddies, depicting mainly country sporting scenes, including :
Boating (specifically the Oxford and Cambridge boat race); ballooning (celebrating the first cross-Channel hot air balloon flight of French balloonist Jean Pierre Blanchard, and his American co-pilot, John Jefferies), cricket, tennis, golf, hare coursing, fishing, falconry, horse jumping, pheasant shooting, hunting, poker, and horse racing.
One panel has a musically themed scene. These scenes are painted on reversed mirror glass with a boxwood surround and ebony & boxwood chequered edging. The interiors have a single floating lid (this sits flush on the surface of the tea to retain its freshness).
