Georgian 18th Century Mahogany Hexagonal Tea Caddy (England c. 1780)

£995.00
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.)
