Mahogany 18th Century Tea Caddy

$1,390.82Asking Price

About

A very attractive late 18th century mahogany tea caddy of oblong form with concave corners having lift up lid enclosing three lidded divisions with elegant inlaid decoration throughout (This is quite an unusual example, constructed from good mahogany with various different inlay techniques incorporated. The overall condition is good and it comes with a fully functioning lock and key. The concave corners are also quite a rare and elegant feature. Tea was of course a precious commodity in the 18th century and tea caddies were used to both preserve the tea leaves and also to lock them away and protect them from any wandering hands.)
