Superb Rare 18th Century Double Tea Caddy Box
Price: $1960.00
Rare and superb circa 1800 double tea caddy box. This is the finest quality tea caddy box you might ever hope to find. The inside of the top has a double inlaid wood design framed with bands of other woods. The top and front have a beautiful shell inlaid wood design. The sides have a floral and vase design. The box is empty .There is no key and the locking mechanism is lacking. We don’t need to lock the tea box any longer. When these tea caddys were made the price of fine tea was expensive thus the locks found on most tea caddys from the 18th and very early 19th centuries to prevent anyone except the owner from using the tea. This box is in wonderful condition considering it is more than 200 years old. The woods have a warm rich glow typical of the finest 18th century tea caddy boxes. This is the first double size 18th century one we have had the pleasure to offer for sale. The box measures width 9-1/2 inches, depth 5-1/8 inches and height 5 inches. The bottom has an old felt pad applied. This is an important circa 18th century tea caddy sure to be welcomed addition to the finest collection. Guaranteed to please as are all our items.
