An early 19th-century tea caddy in sarcophagus form.

The exterior is veneered with a pleasingly figured mahogany, decorated at its seams with lighter banding.

Inside are two compartments, each covered by a mahogany lid with a turned knob of bone in the center.

The underside of the lid is painted red, and the key enters the working lock through a bone escutcheon.

Width: 7-1/2”; height: 5-1/4”; depth: 4-1/2”;

English, ca. 1820
