Date Description: Fine Antique Regency Mahogany Tea Caddy
Country of Origin: England
Dealer Reference: V499


Early 19th century colour and style is captured in this sarcophagus shaped double Tea Caddy. Figured flame mahogany and fine pressed gilded brass feet and handles would have made this container for tea a treasure. The 2 inner removable tea boxes, made of solid mahogany with ebony edging, still slide effortlessly into their compartments, due to the quality of construction. A small veneer patch and repair near a hinge (seen in a photograph), and a replaced glass mixing bowl, are all the damage inflicted by 200 years on this beautiful Tea Caddy.
