Description

These are a delightful pair of unrestored 19th Century antique tea canisters. They have a wonderful untouched patina with original paint.

Inside one of the canisters we found a couple of charming postcards which read 'These are old Chinese lacquer tea canisters they belonged to J.J. Briscoe. He always said they were rare and of some value. I have seen one like them in 1927 in an antique shop in Spring St priced at 35 /- (shillings...' There was also an old piece of paper saying 'Father wished me to have one of these tins Catherine the other. I choose this as mine.'

These bits of writing are a wonderful testament to these canisters history and interesting to think at some point in their history they may have been split up but later returned to be a pair.
