An antique 19th Century Chinese pewter tea caddy, c1890. It is a heavy item ,1.2 kg, and has nicely engraved decoration featuring a dragon motif.

The caddy appears complete with internal lid/compartment. There is a maker's mark on the base 'KUTHING PEWTER SWATOW'. The region Swatow was noted as the area producing the best pewter work in China.

It has aged well, and overall condition is good - with only minor surface wear/rubbing and a few very small dents. All very much as you would expect from a piece of this age. We are unsure whether the base has been replaced. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact us with any questions or if you would like to view the item.
