The lid opens to reveal two inlaid and bevelled tea cannisters that pull out. The inside of the lid retains the original crimson velvet lining. The edges of the interior are veneered with well figured tulipwood.
The body of the tea caddy/chest is crossbanded with tulipwood and ebony with marquetry floral inlay to the back and sides. The front of the tea chest is centralised with a satinwood fandrel, bordered by overlapping padouk discs and crossbanded with boxwood stringing. The key escutcheon sits below floral bell husks.
