A Good Quality Georgian 18th Century Mahogany Rectangular Tea Caddy Having Replacement Brass Axe Drop Handle To Hinged Lid Enclosing Cavity With Attractive Inlaid Decoration Throughout.

Tea was of course a very precious commodity throughout the 18th and 19th centuries and the purpose of a tea caddy was not just to preserve the and extend the life of the precious tea leaves, but also to enable the owner to lock away those aforementioned valuable tea leaves and therefore keep it away from the potential wandering hands of any staff.

This is an attractive design of its type, much larger than often found and constructed from good quality mahogany. It also comes with fully functioning lock and key.

Circa 1790.
