Pair of 19C Philadelphian Chinoiserie Tea Bins by Henry Troemner

PRESENTING a GORGEOUS and EXTREMELY RARE PAIR mid-19th Century, metal Tea Bins, by Henry Troemner of Philadelphia, PA in the Chinoiserie Style.

From circa 1845.

Made of black enameled metal, probably tin, each Tea Tin/Chest has a different Oriental Scene painted on the front in gold paint. Both featuring figures in garden settings with Pagoda’s in the background etc.

The bin is opened by way of a handled lid with bronze handle (original).

Both are LARGE examples of their type.

Both have different names written in cursive on the front but we cannot decipher the names. We think these are family names, but most of these rare chests had the type of tea stored therein, written on the front.
