Tea caddy (one of a pair)

Augustin Courtauld British

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 510

These tea caddies, used for green and black teas, are delicately engraved with the arms of a member of the Still family, descendants of Bishop John Still, who was granted arms in 1593. The three motifs on each shield are roses, and the dotted pattern on the background represents drops of water.
