The Historic Odessa Foundation is pleased to announce As Precious as Gold: A History of Tea Caddies from The Bramble Collection , a temporary exhibition that includes 18th and 19th century tea caddies from the vast Bramble collection, opening on April 3, and continuing through August 26, 2018. The collection was built over two generations and features more than 400 examples, spanning the period from 1700 to the present. The exhibition will be displayed in two of the historic houses of the Historic Odessa Foundation enclave, including the National Historic Register Wilson-Warner House (c. 1769) and the National Historic Landmark Corbit-Sharp House (c. 1774). The displays feature tea caddies arranged in fascinating groups that focus on materials and origin. The caddies and accoutrements are incorporated into these historic period rooms and will include select items from the Historic Odessa Foundation’s permanent collection.
