This is a fantastic antique vintage silver Chinese hexagonal lobed tea caddy or box. Approximately circa 1900’s-1910. The caddy is hand made solid silver filagree with semi-precious polished jeweled turquoise stones and detailed floral and avian enameling. The jade bangle is of very good quality. It is spectacular and so much nicer than the photos. The gold gilt inside is in very good condition. The caddy outside appears goldish in color in the photos but it is more silver color. This could be polished with silver polish to a bright shine but I have left the aged patina. It is in overall excellent original condition with the exception of a small dent on the bottom. Hallmarked SILVER on the bottom. This is a very large size at almost 7 1/2. It weighs 540 grams of silver. Please see my other listed Chinese tea caddy.
