About

A Fine Quality Regency Period Burr Elm Sarcophagus Shaped Tea Caddy having Strung Decoration And Hinged Lid Enclosing Lidded Divisions With Original Brass Lions Mask Handles To Side Raised On Elegant Original Brass Paw Feet (This is a fine quality Regency period tea caddy constructed from superbly figured burr walnut veneers. The overall condition is very good, it retains original brass handles and feet and comes with fully functioning lock and key. Tea was a most precious & valuable commodity in the 19th century and tea caddies were used both to preserve the expensive tea leaves and also lock them away from the wandering hands of any employees.)
