Part of a range inspired by the British Museum, a pewter tea caddy based on the Sutton Hoo helmet.

From Royal Selangor, this tea caddy has been crafted from high-quality pewter and is exquisitely detailed. Underneath the lid of the helmet is an inner lid, ideal for keeping loose leaf tea fresh.

The famous helmet was discovered at Sutton Hoo, an important archaeological site in Suffolk, England. The original dates to the early 7th century and comprises of an iron cap, neck guard, cheek pieces and a face mask featuring panels decorated with animals and heroic scenes of warriors.

The original helmet was discovered in the late 1930s together with other priceless treasures in the great mound at Sutton Hoo, by the archaeologist Basil Brown. He was employed by the owner of the estate, Mrs Edith Pretty, who generously donated the whole find to the British Museum.

An extraordinary gift for the home.
