£850.00

A Good Quality 18th Century Georgian Mahogany
Oblong Tea Caddy Having Well Figured & Inlaid
Hinged Lid Enclosing Original Paper Lined Interior
With Original Solid Lead Lid

(Tea was a very precious commodity in the 18th century and
tea caddies were used to both preserve the tea leaves, and
also to lock it away and protect it from any wandering hands.
This is an attractive example and an elegant shape. It is also
nice to see it had retained its original lead interior lid which
was designed just to rest on top of the tea leaves and keep
them compressed and fresh. It is also worth noting that
this piece comes with fully functioning key.)
