Antique Continental Silver Repoussé Tea Caddy

Antique Continental Silver Repoussé Tea Caddy

$495.00

Found at market, we can't help but be captivated by the lush Art Nouveau aesthetic and storied provenance of this exceptional antique tea caddy. Although no longer stamped with its silver hallmarks, this very distinctive caddy was likely produced by renowned silversmith Simon Rosenau. Artfully made of continental silver, the lavish repoussé metalwork depicts richly romantic florals that beautifully capture the sumptuous spirit of the Art Nouveau movement.

With its classic shape, pull off lid and finely detailed presence, we are so pleased to offer this exquisite, historic tea accessory.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Circa 1890s. In very good antique condition. 4.75"H x 4" x 2.5".

Learn More About Simon Rosenau

Simon Rosenau was a renowned German Jewish silversmith who founded his business in Bavaria in the spa town of Bad Kissingen in 1862. His business flourished as he not only produced pieces for export to England and the United States, but he also supplied the Royal Bavarian Court. In addition, he maintained close business ties with the silver manufacturers in Hanau, Germany which largely worked in antique reproductions for the export market.

His son Hermann Simon Rosenau took over the business in 1890 and continued until closing its doors in 1932. During World War II, Hermann fled Germany to Paris, but tragically he was deported by the Nazis in 1943 and sent to Auschwitz.

Sadly, it is not uncommon to find beautiful silver pieces made by Jewish silversmiths of that era that have had their hallmarks removed.
