A Chinese Export silver tea caddy where all the auspicious motifs can be seen
Dragons for strength , plum blossom for new beginnings, lotus for plenty, bamboo for resilience, chrysanthemums that bloom through the frost and a tranquil scene.
The top is in the form of a flower and bamboo and plum blossom appear again on the shoulders of the piece
The caddy stands on crenelated feet
Fine work indeed
