|Condition:||Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes|
This sarcophagus-shaped tea caddy is made of a light (coniferous) wood glued with (flower) mahogany veneer, during the late English Regency period around 1820-1830. As a contrast there is piping of inlaid tin and rounds of brass in which a flower/rosette is cut out and inlaid with (presumably) ebony. Inside, there are two compartments for tea with remnants of the original silver foil and lockable with a mahogany lid with a twisted mahogany knob. In the middle there is a cut-out for the mixing bowl, this is unfortunately, as often occurs, probably broken and has not been replaced. Both the inside of the lid and the compartment of the mixing bowl are lined with the original red paper. On either side of the tea box there are (ring-) handles with the lion head that is so typical for this period. All the mountings, i.e. hinges, lock, and lock plate are original, a working key is unfortunately missing. The tea box rests on flat twisted legs. There are several old and non-disturbing restorations to the veneer all over the object. The tea caddy has a lovely warm gold-orange colour and a beautiful silky gloss.
The tea caddy will be well packed and shipped insured!
