An early 19th century tea box with a sarcophagus base and a pyramidal cover. Inside are two bins for tea, each with a square lid with a small brass knob at its center. The underside of the lid is covered with soft pink paper, and the bins retain some of their original liner.

The caddy stands on small, round brass feet, and the ends are fitted with elegant brass handles for convenience in lifting. The caddy was made of straight-grained deal, or Continental pine, and then veneered with this beautifully figured mahogany.

English, ca. 1780

Width: 9 ¼”; Depth: 4 ¾”; Height: 6”
