A significant double Tea Caddy constructed of tortoiseshell with ivory stringing in the interior and a RARE translucent shell top. Unusual small size with scalloped edging that undulates on all four sides makes this a remarkable piece. Typical of the regency period caddies this one sports two compartments with tortoiseshell lids with ivory knobs. The last photo shows it in the company of a part of a significant collection of tea caddies that just arrived. More photos available.
