Matt, the item on the last picture is a tea caddy?

Right, that is a tea caddy. Initially, one didn't picture the caddy, but was persuaded by its beautiful shape to take a snapshot and add it to the post. Korean tea sets usually don't come with tea caddies. Nowadays, many artists make a caddy that matches some of their sets, but it is always sold separately. Many people choose to have a caddy that naturally contrasts their tea pot as opposed to matching it.
