CHINESE TEA CADDY, HOW OLD COULD IT BE ?
I have this porcelain tea caddy,about 16 cm.s high, with a continuous handpainted scene all around.
Could the lid have Chinese symbols or characters on them? & if so ,are they helpful in determining a production date or region?
Really don't know much else to tell you more, except that I was attracted to the beautiful sapphire blue colour of the piece.
Could be a modern tea caddy made for export to the West perhaps?
If so age would be very hard to tell & probably not relevant.
I'm guessing here.
What do you think?
appreciatively yours, Andrew.
