During the 18th century tea caddy sets consisted of three elements: two caddies for different kinds of tea and one for the owner’s personal blend. The Leiden silversmith who created this miniature set specialized in large silver items. He constructed the miniature caddies, using rectangular pieces of silver plate, in the same way he did those of larger format.
