SOLD Fantastic and rare 1930's Sadler "Pinkie" crinoline lady large biscuit barrel/tea caddy with bamboo handle, in the desirable and highly collectible cube shape with applied gold fern/floral chintz overlay and the Pinkie lady design on both sides......large Sadler tea caddies are VERY hard to find especially in the cube shape. "Pinkie" is a popular and very charming vintage design on Sadler teapots and other pieces---I've decided to part with my large "Pinkie" collection as shown in the the last photo here---so do check my other listings for more gorgeous goodies! This listing is for the Sadler tea caddy ONLY.
Please be sure to read this description completely so that you are aware of and understand all elements, issues and policies before purchasing, thank you!
Measurements of this wonderful caddy/barrel, excluding the handle:
7" tall by 8" across from knob to knob
No cracks, has light overall crazing except for the lid which has none; some wear to the gold on the lid handle, top edges, and side knobs; has one old chip on the back top edge (see photo)....so is priced accordingly. The "Pinkie" pink crinoline lady decorations on the front and back are clear, bright and well-detailed; has a nice, clean bamboo handle in good shape. Marked on the bottom Sadler Made in England plus an artist notation/number in gold.
This beauty, as with all my pieces, will be exceptionally well wrapped and packaged in the best shipping materials and sturdy boxing---through years of purchasing fine china I know how important it is to package things carefully. Please note that if there is breakage caused in shipping, refunds WILL be given when buyer provides me with photographs of the damage immediately upon receipt of the damaged goods----not several days, or weeks, or months after receipt----since these are vintage items there will be no refunds for other reasons, as I take great care to describe items/issues meticulously and thoroughly; and because they are VINTAGE items with the inherent age qualities of vintage items, I do not guarantee or claim that they are new and as-flawless-as new. I make every effort to scrutinize each piece very carefully, and will always note any flaw or issue within the description. If purchasing more than one item from my vintage china section, I will combine shipping wherever possible/feasible and refund any excess postage once I've packaged all of your items, if there is an excess (Please note that some items may be too large or numerous to safely combine together with others in one package) I've lovingly acquired and curated vintage china pieces for years now and have carefully searched for matching pieces in the same patterns as well as ones that harmonize beautifully with each other to create a charming ambience for a tea table, celebration, or just to display and enjoy.....vintage china sets such a wonderfully nostalgic mood as well as being delightful to collect... For the first time I am now sharing them in my shop along with my own handmade artworks and one of a kind designer original creations---stay tuned for many, many more exquisite pieces!
