In very good and completely original condition

A richly and elegantly designed tea casket made in China.

Tea caskets like these were made specifically for the European market, to be sold as (extra) export product alongside tea, mostly to England. The tea casket is made of a lightweight type of wood, is varnished black and is beautifully decorated all around with refined gold paintings. The image on the lid depicting a typical day in China has faded slightly. Also applied with refined ornamental lines, flower and leaf motifs, and insects like butterflies/moths. The inside contains two removable tin or lead canisters with two different lids, the most inner one of which features a twisted knob made of bone. The outer lid serves a decorative purpose as well as being an indicator for the right amount of tea. Both tea canisters are also richly and very refinedly engraved with flower and leaf motifs. In both canisters, the soldered seams have loosened in certain places. The tea casket still possesses its original brass hinges and clasp with working key. The tea casket has a wonderful silky gloss and rests on four carved, gold-plated clawed feet.

Measurements: height 13.5 cm, width 19.5 cm, depth 13 cm.

    tafel is origineel "uit de tijd" maar de conditie valt een beetje tegen, met name de poot heeft veel schadeplekken, maar daar was de prijs ook naar, dus zal ik niet verder zeuren

    Geachte meneer Metselaar, dank voor uw feedback. Spijtig om te horen dat de conditie van de tafel u toch wat tegenvalt en de gebruikssporen/schades u storen. Ondanks dat u de tafel scherp heeft kunnen kopen, zien we wel graag dat u 100% tevreden bent over de gedane aankoop. Zoals vermeld in de beschrijving zou de gehele tafel een keer weer goed in de boenwas gezet moeten worden. Zodat het houtwerk/schades weer gevoed en beschermt worden en de tafel weer diepte en een zijdeglans krijgt. Desgewenst kunnen wij u hierin verder adviseren zodat u van het diner kunt genieten aan een statige tafel!
