Description

A Very Attractive Late 18th Century Mahogany Tea
Caddy, Unusually Of Hexagonal Form, Having Inlaid
And Crossbanded Decoration With Working Lock
And Key
(This is quite an unusual example, constructed from a good
grade of mahogany with various different inlays incorporated.
The overall condition is good and it comes with a fully
functioning lock and key. The hexagonal shape is also quite
rare and not often found. Tea was of course a precious commodity
in the 18th century and tea caddies were used to both preserve
the tea leaves, but also to lock it away and protect it from any wandering
hands.)
Circa 1780
