An exeptional rosewood tea caddy with heavy cast brass handles and brass cast feet in casket form with shaped lid and lock. The edges are possibly yew wood. The interior is fitted with removable hinge lidded compartments with a round center for mixing bowl which is not included. Though tea caddy displays beautifully it has a couple of flows, the first of which is a gap in the lid toward the right as you face it. The front left foot (as you face it) is missing a screw, and the back lid shows some marring. This tea caddy dating to the first quarter of the 19th century is beautiful display piece with excellent finish.
Dimension: 14" x 7 3/4" x 6 1/8"
