A very attractive 18th century Georgian mahogany square
Tea caddy having hinged lid with original brass handle
And elegant original inlaid decoration

(Tea was a very precious commodity in the 18th century and
tea caddies were used to both preserve the tea leaves, and
also to lock it away and protect it from any wandering hands.
This particular example is most attractive it is quite unusual for being
square in shape as opposed to the much more common oblong.
Another additional feature is the charming original inlaid decoration.
Many that we see on the market have been inlaid in relatively recent
times to try and enhance their appeal and therefore value. It is also
worth noting that this piece comes supplied with fully functioning key.)
