Tea Caddy a la Marie Antoinette

If Marie Antoinette were taking tea this is what the tea would be stored in! This is a Dresden porcelain tea caddy up for auction on Ebay. I want this but will probably be outbid as I am every time I try for one of these MA monogrammed pieces. I love tea caddies and actually use them.
Carl Thieme was a Dresden porcelain maker and sometimes his pieces show up on Ebay. This one actually had MT as monogram for her mother Empress Maria Theresa of Austria. No one bid on this I guess because of a high starting price and a crack in the top. Still pretty.
Have a Pink day!
