Early Prattware Macaroni Tea Caddy. A Pratt Ware tea canister, circa 1790, with macaroni figures in relief, and strongly colored in blue, ochre, and green under a translucent glaze.One side of the canister depicts a gentleman in an exaggerated high wig with his servant beside him. On the other side is a similarly caricatured lady and her servant. The sides of the canister are painted with sprays of flowers, also in blue. A nearly identical version of this tea canister is in the Huntly House Museum and is attributed to Gordon's Bankfoot Pottery in Prestonpans. There is also another example in the Victoria and Albert Museum. This is an incredibly fine example with extremely fine definition of lines. 5.5"H X 3.5"W. Condition: Hairline to rim, minor edge wear and chips, lid has repair to side and missing finial.
