Date Description: Pr 19th Century Japanned Shop Tea Tins

Dealer Reference: U494


A handsome pair of Victorian floor standing shop Tea Tins. The japanned metal containers are black with gold banding and large gold labels, of Chinese script, to the front. Mahogany hinged lids are partly flat and partly sloping. The sloping lids, finished with a nice moulded edge, has indented marks, probably from use of a metal scoop for dispensing the loose tea. There is typical scratching to the metal surfaces, but overall the tea tins are in surprisingly good condition. Circa 1880
