A rare and fine mid 18th century repousse silver tea caddy by Francis Crump in the Chinoiserie taste of oblong shape, having a hinged lid and sides decorated profusely with Chinese figures, palm trees, flowers, shells and C-scrolls.

Note: This exquisite tea caddy exemplifies the high rococo, a style promoted by Thomas Chippendale in his publication the Gentlemen and Cabinet-maker's Director as the 'modern taste'.
