hi... got this the other day...it was in a 'grab bag' and i didn't see that it had corrosion on the bottom until after i got it home :( i searched the internet for awhile and finally figured out what it is :) it is a brass asian tea caddy...as far as dating it, well i have to work on that...does anyone know if it's worth it to get it fixed? i was very disappointed to see the corrosion on the bottom...it is missing a 'foot' nubby . there is minimal corrosion and i am wondering if i should try and fix it....it is very lovely...there a 4 different scenes on the body and as you can see... i think it has bats and an asian character on the lid? lol...if you know anything about this very interesting piece please leave me a message....love this site!
hi, after reading some of the comments i decided to try and take a better pic of my brass tea caddy...it has 4 different scenes and some chinese character writing altho i don't have a clue what it says...i haven't decided what i gonna do with this one yet...it is still missing a 'nub' or 'foot' and i have not seen another one like it yet so for now it remains with only 3 nubs...thanks for looking and i will update when i know more about my brass tea caddy...love this site! p.s. i tried the nail polish remover test and the paint or enamel did not come off.
