In very good original and restored condition
A 19th century tea box made in France during the Louis Philippe - period around 1830-1850. The box is made of a light (coniferous) type of wood and lined with rosewood veneer. And as contrast there has been chosen for golden yellow box wood for the bands, quarter round edges, key entrance and the text.
On the inside the tea box is lined with white paper and red fabric, both have the expected traces of wear/stains. At the bottom of the tea box are compartments for the three porcelain bottles; two for different kinds of tea and the middle one for sugar. The porcelain bottles are very refined decorated with golden details, which have relatively little wear. The two bottles for tea are flawless, the bottle for the sugar has an old, not disturbing, restoration on the front left, and at the back, right, there are two chips. The tea box still has its original hinges and lock with working key. The tea box is, considering its age, in a very good condition and has a beautiful warm colour which stands out beautifully by the chic gloss of the authentic wax finish.
Dimensions; Height: 13.5 cm, width: 23.5 cm, depth: 12 cm.
