All four sides of this magnificent tea caddy are executed in mokume - one of Tiffany's outstanding mixed-metals silversmithing achievements. These undulating sides are bordered with applied solid gold wire. The bulbous feet are chased with aesthetic foliage, as is the flat platform of the top. A removable cover is also enveloped with mokume with a silver border. A fitted interior cap is mounted with a knob finial surrounded by chased foliage. The underside is engraved with an 'FJM' monogram.
