18th century tea box produced during the Dutch Louis XV period around 1760-1770. The tea box is made of solid oak and mahogany and glued with mahogany veneer. The tea box is very elegantly curved and richly decorated with different profiles. On the inside there is a large open compartment and a smaller compartment for the silver spoons or sugar tongs. Originally, there were two partitions to divide the large compartment into threes for three copper tea caddies. Parts of the inside are lined with red velours and band. Both hinges are not original and the working lock with key is a 19th century copy. Whether the lock and the hinges were replaced at the same time (in the 19th century) is not known. The sawn brass key entrance and handgrip on the lid are original. The tea box has the expected signs of use and small well-executed (not disturbing) old restorations. The tea box rests on its original cast brass lion claw feet. The entire tea box has a beautiful deep warm colour, patina and silk sheen of the authentic wax polish.
