Ming Tea Caddy, Kingfisher Blue

Product code 0144002

Size H16cm x Dia 11cm x approx 150g capacity

  • USD $176.00

The blue of the curvaceous lantern-shaped caddy is derived from the similarly-hued plumage of the kingfisher. Regarded as an emblem of feminine beauty, its feathers were once used in exquisite bejewelled hair and clothing accessories, as well as incorporated into embroidery, pictures and screens.

The lid’s cartouche features a sculpted border of stylised peony petals, surrounding a space that allows personalisation.
