A wonderful and very rare vintage tin tea dispenser, a superb find, which I believe was a promotional piece created by the tea merchants of Ceylon, which of course has now become Sri Lanka.
The tin has fixings to be wall mounted, the tea is placed in the top, by the hinged lid, which has a clear window, so you can see when it needs refiling. the loose tea is then dispensed my pulling a handle on the side which releases just over a teaspoon of tea down the shoot and straight into your teapot.
The unit is in good condition there are some light signs of wear, mainly under the base, which won't be seen anyway, inside is clean and fresh, study the photos, but in my opinion, the condition is excellent for a used item of this nature.
The tin measures 18.2 cm tall x 10 cm deep and 10 cm wide not including the fixed wall brackets.
And is absolutely gorgeous.

Everyone is responsible for there own customs tax and duties. ( I think you have to generally spend a lot to have to pay any, but it's up to you to look into it)
