Vintage black metal 1/2 pound tea caddy with a Japanese style design on the sides and lid.
It is a lovely shape tin with two of the sides having a gold coloured flower with red centres. The other 2 sides have a gold coloured stork with a red head, next to some blossom and in front of a mountain, in darker coloured tones. The lid has a traditional style chrysanthemum flower in the same darker tones used on the sides. The gold colour is carried to the inner rim of the caddy and the original Ambra Tea Registered Trademark 1/2lb Net sticker is still on the base.
There are some surface wear and scratches and some rusting around the edges. This can all be seen in the photographs.
