A fine and impressive Yugoslavian silver tea caddy; an addition to our silver teaware collection

This fine Yugoslavian silver tea caddy has an oval rounded, tapering form.

The surface of the box is plain and unembellished.

This tea caddy is fitted with a plain domed hinged cover surmounted with an impressive chased decorated festoon style bow finial.

The cover features a hallmarked incurved thumbpiece to the anterior edge. Please see image 8 for reference.

This tea caddy is supported by four impressive chased leaf decorated feet.

The caddy retains the original gilded interior.

The hallmarks struck to this impressive tea caddy consists of a Yugoslavian import mark denoting the finesse/purity of silver as .800 standard; this horse head mark was used from 1919-1933, determining the date of this piece as circa 1925.

This impressive example of silverware features no maker's mark; the maker is therefore unknown.

Condition
This oval silver tea caddy is an excellent gauge of silver, excellent quality and in excellent condition.
The chased decoration is very sharp.
The hallmarks struck to the surface of the rim and part hallmarks to the thumbpiece are all very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of silverware.
